    The Consumer Preview of Skype Integration for Windows 10 is here – Tell us what you want to see next

    Do you want to send quick messages from your PC to your family while you’re working? Need help cooking at home and want to show your sister exactly what you are seeing with a couple clicks? Now you can connect with them straight from your PC’s taskbar.

    Today, the Consumer Preview of Skype Integration begins rolling out as part of the November operating system update for Windows 10 PCs. In this preview we’ve built selected Skype video calling and messaging features, like 1:1 messaging, calling and emoticons, into native Windows 10 apps to make communicating from your desktop quick and easy.

    Once you’re on the latest version of Windows 10, give Skype video and Messaging apps a go. You’ll find them in your start menu and you can pin them to your taskbar for even faster access. Then let us know what you think and what you want to see next using the Windows Feedback app.

    Why are "consumer preview" versions of apps being pushed in the non-Insider channel? Does MS consider us all to be beta testers now?

    I guess no-one in the insider program bothered to test them. I certainly didn't (but did notice you couldn't uninstall Skype/Messenger with the normal powershell commands).

    Does this mean the Skype app is no longer needed in Windows 10?

    I'd use the desktop program still at the moment. This one you can't see who is on line. Also I used it yesterday and the screen kept blanking during an active call (the screen saver coming on perhaps).

    Interesting... Does the integrated one have all the emoticons and moji's?

    I don't know about all (I'm far to old to understand) but having a quick look there is this lot in the Messenger app if that's what you mean...
