With the release of the BlackBerry 10.1 OS, Skype today starts to roll out on the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, Z10 users around the world will be able to enjoy the preview version of Skype on their devices. U.S. users who update their devices should be able to download Skype from the BlackBerry World store in order to easily connect with family and friends. Here's more info:
With Skype on your BlackBerry Z10 you will be able to talk with your loved ones using free video and voice calling, send them instant messages, or if you know they are busy, reach them through text or video messages. In addition, you'll be able to call landlines and mobiles all over the world at Skype's low rates.
As with the BlackBerry Q10, Skype on Z10 offers tight integration with your BlackBerry smartphone. Once you sign into Skype on your phone, your Skype contacts are automatically added to your BlackBerry phonebook. This means you can see your Skype friends and their profile details, and initiate a chat with a contact directly from the phonebook. What's more, all your Skype notifications - including incoming chat, contact invite requests, and the like - are automatically visible in the BlackBerry Hub.
