Skype Windows Phone app in employee testing stage

Microsoft has made a version of Skype available for download from the Windows Phone Marketplace, though it's only for employees, The Verge reported. The app is still undergoing testing, and will reportedly be customized to resemble the Metro interface, with a two-column grid for contacts, similar to the photo here. The app won't integrate Windows Phone's People Hub, however, as that's due later in 2012 as part of Windows Phone 8.

The final app is expected very soon, as hinted last month, which could indicate it will make its debut at Mobile World Congress at the end of this month. Internal testing of the app is said to be nearly complete.

The expectations for the app and its levels of integration with the OS are high, especially since the software giant purchased the smaller company at the start of last year for $8.5 billion.
