Skype launches beta app for Windows Phone – Video

With this mornings announcement by Nokia that the Lumia 900 will grace our shores here in Europe one of the key apps that this device will benefit from is Skype due to the Lumia 900 having a front facing camera.

Skype have today released a beta version of their app for Windows Phone which is available to download from the Marketplace. With it still being in beta I found the UI to be a bit bland in comparison with Android and iOS but I am sure this will be addressed in the full version.

Skype calling and instant messaging works just fine. I tested it myself, although not being able to use video chat due to lack of front facing camera on my hardware.

You can see a demo of the Skype app in action below:
