Skype integration to receive calls and messages in the background
We need Skype.
It's great that we have the full Skype app but it closes whenever you leave the app. It would be great if it could run in the background to receive calls and notifications!
we need skype
Skype is must for WP7. all OS have SKYPE and even Microsoft is the Owner of Skype.
Skype chat integrated in Messaging along with sms, msn messenger and Facebook chat - not as stand alone as it is rumored to be
This feature is now available in Windows Phone 8.
Many people use Skype instead of windows live and It would be great if Skype was incorporated into the OS as well as Facebook is!
Skype is must have in wm7!!
we need integrated skype experience. not just an app

It's coming in like 4 weeks
We are all waiting for skype, but Tango is definitely worth a try for audio and video calls over data (wifi or 3g). No need to be logged in (as skype) to receive calls!
Yes 100%, come on microsoft, also put it on my 360. :)

And not just an app! We want integration with the OS itself, in the Phone app. Handle it just like it was a number, like "call Skype" and "chat on Skype", as well as receiving calls to the phone like it was a phone call.

We want and NEED a Skype app and integration..
<just like other devices!!>
Twitter, facebook, gmail integration.. I like it so much!!
It will be great, if WP7 will support ICQ and Skype integration
Skype integration would be great. I occasionally travel around and still want to stay in contact with my family when I am out of the country. I don't want to take my laptop with me only because I need Skype.

Definitely needed, but I'm mostly interested in the ability to make phone calls over wi-fi networks. This should be fully integrated into the phone without any need for Skype credit. Ideally we'd see something like the best Google Voice applications.
LOL, I cannot even get Mango on my Samsung Focus 1.4. Apple will be on iOS 1000 before you see Skype integrated properly. Ballmer should have spent $8 Billion on Apps.
