Microsoft today released a new app for the users on Android. The app is a new Skype App called “Skype Mingo” App. Skype Mingo is a different app from the regular Skype App of Microsoft. The Skype Mingo app is currently in Alpha and will be a bit buggy while operating the app.

Skype Mingo appears to be a sampling of where Microsoft hopes to take the communications service in the future. In addition to the expected Skype call and messaging features, Skype Mingo also boasts greater mobile phone integration and can function as a location for making native phone calls (i.e. regular phone calls can be made from this app instead of the usual method) and sending SMS messages.

Here’s the official app description:

Skype Mingo (Alpha) is your ultimate communications hub, providing native calling, SMS, and contacts management capability, in addition to the rich Skype functionality you already know and love.

FAST: Optimized for speed, Mingo is small and fast. Gives you a rich set of features in a small, easy to manage package.

SMART: Helps you save money, with advanced features such as Economical Calling, and On-Demand Sync. Provides direct access to your data usage statistics, so that you can always be in control of your data. Gives you access to thousands of Skype bots.

UNIVERSAL: Native phone calls, phone contacts and SMS. Rich Skype chats, file and photo sharing, and audio and video calls.

The app is currently available and you can get it by clicking the below link.
