    I've installed the Messaging Skype Preview for Windows 10 Mobile. The functionality looks pretty slick, but I'm concerned about backing up the text messages. If I switch to this app as my native SMS application, do my text messages get backed up via the usual method? What I'm trying to avoid is getting a whole slew of texts via the Skype Preview App, wiping the phone when I install a new build of Windows 10 Mobile, and losing all of the texts that I sent via the Skype Preview App. Anybody have an insight on this?

    text messages are handled by the native text message app. the skype messaging up can be thought of as an extension on top of that. so to answer your question. you will have no issues, I have tested it and confirm it works. just make sure your setting has text message backup on..
