    Microsoft has announced that a Windows 10 Mobile version of Skype's Windows 10 Universal app has begun rolling out. Dubbed Skype Preview, the application is currently only available to Windows Insiders.

    As for the app's key features, here's what Microsoft says:

    This release brings one of our most requested Skype features to your Windows 10 phone: the ability to make group video calls. You can have up to 25 friends and family come together on a free group video call, talk face-to-face with a 1:1 call, message your friends in an instant to share photos, emoticons and Mojis to liven up your conversation. You can also quickly reply to Skype messages—no need to open Skype.

    The software giant says that some other features, like SMS relay - which allows you to send SMS messages from a Windows 10 PC or Windows 10 phone - will be added to the app later this summer. To download the new Skype Preview Windows 10 Mobile app, head to the Source 1 link below.
