Windows 10 Mobile allows users to set Skype as default call option

Skype logoWindows 10 Mobile, or whatever the final name, will surely bring lots of changes and improvements in comparison with Windows Phone 8.

Some of the apps that come by default in Windows Phone, like People and Call apps, will be tweaked for easier and quicker access.

During its BUILD 2015 conference, Microsoft showed some of the changes included in these applications and we're already reported on some of them such as Call, Contact, Dialer, and People.

Today, the folks over at NPU have found more screenshots taken from the slides presented at BUILD 2015, which show even more changes for services and apps included in Windows 10 Mobile.

For example, Windows 10 Mobile users will be able to set Skype as default call and text option. This isn't really a surprise since the previous screenshots that we reported on included various call options that people could choose from such as SIM, Skype, Xbox and Lync.

The options to choose Skype as default can be made from a contact card and has multiple settings, including Message, Call mobile, Call on an app, and Video call.

But this is not all, as it appears that Microsoft made it so that only 6 contacts will be available in the People application in Windows 10 Mobile.

Obviously, you can choose to show Outlook, Skype, Google contacts, but only 6 of them will be displayed on the screen at any given time.

Windows 10 Mobile will most certainly bring even more changes into the mix. Some of them will be available earlier via Technical Preview builds, while others won't be released until the final version of the OS.

Speaking of which, Microsoft is expected to release Windows 10 on phones after the PC version gets launched this summer. Also, the first smartphones powered by the new OS will probably hit shelves later this year.
