Messaging app on Windows 10 Mobile adds Skype Messaging

For those running Windows 10 Mobile, the Microsoft Messaging app just got an update, integrating Skype Messaging. Skype integration with Windows 10 Mobile Messaging has been a beta feature for some time, but it looks like Microsoft is putting on the finishing touches with this latest update. This app update lets you chat with your Skype contacts in the messaging app and toggle to either SMS or Skype instantaneously. SMS Search is another added and welcome feature. I noticed that this update included some performance fixes as the Messaging app seems a bit faster than before.

Skype Video Preview also got a little update; changing its name to simply, Skype Video.  Both apps integrate your Skype and Windows 10 Mobile contacts together, making it easier to message them anyway you want. Skype Messaging and Skype Video are expected to be Universal apps on Windows 10, coming out sometime later this year.
