Skype for Windows Phone 8 is not yet available and Skype for Windows Phone 7 is not compatible with WP7. We are working hard to make the app available as soon as possible.

Re: Can't download it on my Windows 8 phone

:sad:

 

Cant wait, cant wait, cant wait.... 

I'm a developer too, so I know it not make it faster, but .... Please work harder!

Are there any timelines? I mean can it take 1 year, 1 month, 1 week, 1day??

 

im a little disapointed about that, because if anybody looks at the wp8 advertise everywhere, there are allways skype icons on the home screen. so if anybody like me buying a new device (lumia 920 for me) is very sad if you then see "sorry not yet".

Regards

How come Skype for WP8 is not release yet and WP8 devices are already hitting the shelves today. I've been reading a lot of disappointments from WP8 users today. Please make this app becomes available ASAP.

Do you have a project plan with a timeline? Could you share with us at least a `which week` estimation? Otherwise you'd look weak, how could you develop something not estimating its effort?

Re: Can't download it on my Windows 8 phone

We do of course have project plans, estimates, and so on, but sharing timescales is not the development team's responsibility. An announcement will be made (most likely via The Big Blog) at an appropriate time.

 

In the meantime we appreciate your patience; we're keen to ship, too :wink:
