Microsoft further buries its Messenger application for the benefit of Skype which constitute its main instant messaging in Windows 8.1.
Returning to its development efforts for Window 8.1, Microsoft says the Skype will be incorporated as a default service in order to provide a consistent experience to the consumer. Thus, in addition to further implementation of SkyDrive, Skype will also be introduced.
In September 2012, Microsoft had already started a little further integration of VoIP software purchased for $8.5 billion in May 2011. Updates and Skype were deployed directly via the Windows Update Module.
Skype on its blog confirms that its application will be pre-installed by default which is actually not very surprising, since Microsoft wants to integrate this platform throughout its flagship products ranging from Xbox, Outlook.com or even Office.
