    Today, Microsoft unleashed a salvo of news regarding Windows 10. Whether it was news for the desktop OS, gaming or something about holograms, there was something for everyone. After the main event, the press spent a good five hours in private tours of Microsoft's new announcements. Although video was not allowed, there was plenty of nitty-gritty that they revealed. First up, Skype.
    Microsoft demoed how the Messaging app on Windows 10 for *phone lets users switch between Skype messaging or SMS. This change is a total throwback to the early Windows Phone days with the Messaging Hub, and it's a welcome return. However, what about the Skype appdo you still need it for Windows 10 on the phone?

    No, you don't. You can still install if you want to, but Skype is native to the Windows 10 OS.
