    Skype as a product, while meh, does offer some very good capabilities. Integrating Skyoe into the OS to replace the Dialer and the messaging app the same way Xbox replaces media apps sounds like a good idea. So we now have two apps, Skype Messaging texts and IM, Skype Calls which integrates with video calls and any Skyoe number. It could elp push both brands forward and allow them to feed on each other, as well as add a splash of color to the dark messaging app

    I hate the white background of skype. They should give an option to user to switch between dark/light mode.

    Skype is pretty bland and boring.
    I use it...but don't really like the interface or features.

    Wish Microsoft would pump some effort into Skype

    This is true!
    File sharing is certainly lacking in Skype...

    I agree. I use WhatsApp more than Skype mainly because of file sharing capabilities.

    And Whatsapp is more stable. Sucks when my mum wants to call me on Skype but it doesn't ring

    I will agree with you. It will be the same as Google does with its Hangouts App.
    This is quite a cool thing to have everything in one place.

    We could have two separate sets and you could choose on settings. Allow skype to handle your calls? Or something

    a merged app is a bad idea imho,imessage is also similiar and so are hangouts and google voice, they should concentrate on improving the skype app first

    I'm guessing that file sharing in Skype is not there yet because it's not possible. You can't attach a file to an existing email due to OS limitation.

    Not with WP8.1, but few phones have it officially yet. And after 8.1 is rolled out, the apps will need to be updated to take advantage of the capability.

    Nope. It's because there is some stupidity going on

    I think MS will bring the mail or Outlook (of Windows 8) and OneNote for WP, along with the new Office.
    And was not ready in time. It's the only thing I can think of.

    This. In most business scenarios - you don't create new emails. You email attachments to the same thread of conversation that is on-going to keep it traceable for yourself as well as for others involved. With WP, in order to send someone a document or a set of documents - you have to create either a new email or dump those scattered files into a folder and share the link to folder on Onedrive. - not ideal.

    I want just a file picker on email.
    Or, when share the file 📁, I can put the attachment on a existing conversation...
