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.

My guess is we will see a Skype app in early January but Skype will not be pervasive until a new build of WP is shipped. When that build is released in the Spring of 2012, we will see Skype integration similar to what we have today with Facebook and Twitter. It will be a part of the core WP DNA. Word to the wise, if you're buying a phone now, get one with a front facing camera.
Integrate Sype into "Contacts" as a field that can be populated for any contact. Integrate Skype as an optional setting that can appear as a separate button on the "Dialing Keypad" and have it light up as only available when there is a wi-fi connection. Give Skype as a selection under "Settings" to set it up.
Fully integrated Skype could very well define WP7.
How dare you guys make an app for iOS and android but not for WP
seriously, what's the delay MSFT, you own Skype. Get agile and get the app available asap
Skype is a must when it comes to Windows Phone....
One thing (sure it's been said before) that Skype will need to do is use Wi-Fi if available instead of cellure data connection (3G/4G/CMDA etc). Another great feature would be able to switch over during a call. Example, a call is using the phone's 3G connection for the call and when a Wi-Fi connection is made, the 3G is turned off and the call continues via the Wi-Fi.
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!

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.
