As the saying goes, when it rains it pours. Likewise, there are good news in a row from Microsoft, not one but two.
The first one is that the little glitches that seemed to be plaguing Windows Phone users since January 12th have been put into rest.
And the second great news is that Microsoft has formally announced that it will be soon launching Skype as a Windows app.
Since the start of January 2012, it seemed that certain notifications and app updates were blocked in the Windows Phone. Updates from social networking sites or feeds from Windows Live were unavailable. Though there was no formal explanation from Microsoft, it seems that the issue has been solved. By late January 15th Windows Phone users were relieved to find that the issues resolved themselves. Finally there were no more glitches that appeared on the Windows Phone that started appearing from January 12th.
Another good news that awaits all Windows Phone users is that Microsoft have declared that it will launch Skype app for its Window 7 phone users. Though Microsoft originally promised Skype app for its users by the end of 2011 but it is only now in CES 2012, that it has finally announced its launch. There is still no word from Microsoft on its delay. The news of its launch came when Microsoft’s Rick Osterloh, vice president of products who said in an interview at CES 2012 that Microsoft’s Skype division is, “working on a Windows Phone product that will be coming out soon” for those who are missing having Skype on their WP handsets.
It might not be long that all you need to tap your Window 7 phone and Skype is at your service.
