Agreed. This must be integrated into the Messaging Hub. It is rather annoying having to use the Skype app. I love how Messenger is intergrated.
Also, I agree that Skype should be come part of the OS and not really be an app of the OS.
Like the idea!.. and of course you need to work in the notification MPOP too!
Understood that messenger fro the built-in hub would not be feature rich, but for simple text messenging and file sharing, which is probably what most people do 90% of the time, it would be great to not have to open an app and everything in one place.
I would also recommend that skype call should also go without opening Skype APP..
Agree wholeheartdly with all the above comments, and please make Skype chat when other person is offline persistent and reliable, just like SMS! Then I don't need to bother with WhatsApp and will convert all my friends and family back to Skype!
