During today's Mobile World Congress Nokia press conference, Terry Myerson announced the long awaited launch of Skype for Windows Phone which is now available as a public Beta. Skype for Windows Phone Beta supports the most important Skype features you've come to know and love. And you will be especially thrilled by the clean and simple Skype experience that the Metro user interface delivers on your Windows Phone. It has never before been so easy to connect with the people you care about most. With Skype for Windows Phone Beta you can make free audio and video calls to your Skype contacts over 3G and 4G or WiFi, make affordable calls to landlines and mobiles using Skype Credit, create and hold one-to-one and group chats, and update your profile and account information, among others features.
The public Beta is now available for Windows Phones running Windows Phone 7.5/Mango. Skype has tested and certified the following devices for the best performance of Skype for Windows Phone: Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 800, HTC Titan, HTC Radar, Samsung Focus S, Samsung Focus Flash.
The gold version of the app will be available in April.
