Now in Marketplace: Skype 1.0

The official Skype app for Windows Phone hit Marketplace this weekend. Download it now to start making free voice and video calls to other Skype users (or cheaper calls to landlines and other cells phones with Skype Credit).

If you’ve been using the beta version of the app, unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, you’ll be happy to see the Skype team has been busy these last few months. Besides the usual bug fixing, they’ve also added support for 18 languages and made several other upgrades. A few highlights:

  • portrait mode video calling
  • support for joining audio conference calls
  • call-in-progress notifications
  • block and unblock contacts
  • add new contacts

Skype’s Big Blog and Garage blog have more to say about the new release. They also put together this nice video walkthrough. Take a look.
