Skype Preview SMS

So Skype Preview on Windows 10 Mobile has been doing sms for a while now (mostly). Where do you think the future of this lies in the grand scheme of things? Is this going to grow into an iMessage platform for Mobile and take over messages all together or will it always be an added feature you can take advantage of if you want?

Second part of this question would be, if it does take over messaging how will it relate with the My People app? Could we see that scrapped all together in favor of a contacts management list inside Skype itself?

I'm not the biggest fan of such an idea due to the sync issues that inevitably seem to accompany them but it would be nice for a feature to rival iMessage in the way of message delivery confirmation and read receipts.
