This article will talk about the new features arriving for Windows 10 for phones. Windows 10 OS for Phones will add, new app like Messaging. The Skype app will come incorporated within the OS, so the users will no longer need to have a separate Skype app for their Windows Phones.

Through the event, it could be understood that Microsoft is slowly planning to consolidate as many features as possible in order to promote user friendly single platform OS. This idea was clearly reflected by the change in nomenclature of the Windows Phones OS as adopted by Microsoft.

Once the update is made available to users, that will be able to have their conversations at a single location, sync them across all Windows 10 devices, switch seamlessly between Skype and SMS.
