Microsoft leaks details of upcoming Skype Central Universal Windows 10 App

Windows 10 logoA post has appeared on Microsoft's TechNet that suggests the company could be on the verge of combining Skype for Business and the consumer version of Skype into a single product known as Skype Central.

The move would echo that taken with OneDrive, and would help to streamline things a little for developers. The post is written by Microsoft's Tony Eversole and is designed as a placeholder so developers have a central point to exchange news and information.

This is the first hint that there are any changes planned for Skype -- it is not something that Microsoft has yet talked about. For now the placeholder doesn’t give away a great deal:

Microsoft leaks details of upcoming Skype Central Universal Windows 10 App

Placeholder entry for Skype Central Universal Windows 10 App. The idea is to have a shared blog from which PFE/DSE engineers can update the main landing page of the app to include news, troubleshooting, CU release information, or anything related to Skype for Business. This shared blog feed will be the mechanism from which Windows 10 Live Tiles are updated (notifications in Action Center, Live Tile data update, new article count, etc). This shared blog/feed can be hosted on TechNet or a 3rd party blogging service which complies with RSS 2.0.

Over on WinSuperSite, Richard Hay says that the post is home to two logos for Skype Central but it appears that it has since been updated, as there is only one visible now. Watch this space for more details!.
