Microsoft confirms: Skype won't be a universal app for Windows 10

ZDNet got a Microsoft rep to answer some questions about Windows 10 and Skype. Here's the quick summary of what Microsoft revealed during that Q&A:"The take-aways: Microsoft isn't planning to redo its Modern Skype app as a Universal Windows app, but instead is replacing that Modern Skype app with three separate but related Universal communications apps. Those Messaging, Phone and Video apps with Skype "built in" won't be part of Windows 10 when it starts rolling out on July 29; they will be available "later this year." Windows users who prefer using the integrated Skype app will be able to use the Desktop Skype app. These new communications apps won't be coming to Windows 7, Windows 8.x or Windows Phone 8.x."So far, Microsoft has not announced when the preview version of Messaging, Phone and Video apps for Windows 10 will be released to Windows Insider Members. Source: ZDNet
