Microsoft has released Skype version 1.0  for Windows Phone, thus fulfilling a promise the company made at Mobile World Congress to move the app out of beta by April. The 6 MB free Skype for Windows Phone app runs on Windows Phone 7.5 devices and higher. It also works over WiFi or 3G. The Skype 1.0 finally replaces the beta of the app which Microsoft rolled out at the end of February.

Well, the new version 1.0 includes a new feature that lets you search your contacts and add them on Skype. Other improvements include the ability to call landline phone numbers, a quicker boot time, and other bug fixes. It also includes all the Skype basics such as audio and video calls over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi, and group messaging. However, you still can’t receive Skype calls while the app isn’t open or running on your phone.  Apparently this is because of limitations within the Windows Phone OS and Skype, according to Microsoft. Hopefully this will change with the release of Windows Phone 8.
