Say Hello to Skype on BlackBerry Q10

A few weeks back, we announced that the Skype experience would soon be coming to the BlackBerry10 platform. The wait is now over! We’re delighted to tell you the Skype app is now available for download in a preview version for the BlackBerry Q10 from BlackBerry World.

What can you expect?

In this version, you’ll get all the Skype features that people have come to love – such as free video and voice calling, sending instant messages and text messages and calling to landlines and mobiles all over the world at Skype’s low rates.

Keep in mind that this release is still in preview state which means that the experiences are not yet final. We do however think you’ll be impressed – the app already offers all the Skype features BlackBerry 10 users have been looking forward to.


We’ve been working closely with BlackBerry to bring our Skype for Android app to the BlackBerry 10 platform in order to bring all the amazing Skype features to the device. When you start using the app, you will notice we have adjusted the Skype user interface to make it look great on the BlackBerry Q10 display.  Also, we have made it very easy for you to connect with your friends and family. For example, once you sign into Skype on your phone, your Skype contacts are automatically added to your BlackBerry phonebook. This means you can see your Skype friends and their profile details, and initiate a chat with a contact directly from the phonebook – helping you keep in touch with the people who matter to you most.  What’s more, all your Skype notifications – including incoming chat, contact invite requests, and the like – are automatically visible in the BlackBerry Hub.

The Skype app is available April 26th for BlackBerry Q10 users. You can download Skype to your Q10 phone from BlackBerry World now. BlackBerry and your operator will make the new BlackBerry 10.1 operating system available on the BlackBerry Z10 in the near future, also BlackBerry Z10 owners will be able to enjoy Skype.

We would love to hear your feedback. Discuss what matters on Skype Support Network or simply comment on this blog. To find out more about Skype, and learn how you can get the most out of your Skype experience, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
