Updated Skype for Windows Phone Has Arrived

Following the recent availability of the Skype for Windows Phone Beta app announced at Mobile World Congress, on Sunday Skype are releasing an official version of the Skype for Windows Phone app, which is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. You can also get the app directly from your Windows Phone.

Old Version: The first version of Skype for Windows Phone will not support low-end "Tango" devices, Microsoft has revealed. Although the company delivered a 1.0 release of Skype for Windows Phone over the weekend, Microsoft says it will only install and run on devices with 512MB of memory. The majority of Windows Phone devices include 512MB of RAM, but Microsoft's latest "Tango" handsets only feature 256MB of memory.

Updated Skype for Windows Phone Gold version includes the following new features and improvements:

  • Portrait mode video calling
  • Support in 18 languages
  • Add new contacts (Skype and phone contacts)
  • Support for participating on audio conference calls
  • Call-in-progress notification
  • Ability to mark all messages as read
  • Block/unblock/view blocked contacts
