In late April we announced that Skype was available for download in a preview version for the BlackBerry Q10 from BlackBerry World. Today, as the BlackBerry 10.1 operating system starts to roll out on the BlackBerry Z10, we are happy to announce that Z10 users around the world will now be able to enjoy the preview version of Skype on their devices.
We have been working closely with BlackBerry to give users the best possible Skype experience on the Z10, just as we have for the Q10. When you download the Skype app, you can try all of Skype’s popular features, and also see how seamlessly the Skype app integrates with the phone book and the BlackBerry Hub.
With Skype on your BlackBerry Z10 you will be able to talk with your loved ones using free video and voice calling, send them instant messages, or if you know they are busy, reach them through text or video messages. In addition, you’ll be able to call landlines and mobiles all over the world at Skype’s low rates.
Check with your local operator to see when the 10.1 update to the Blackberry operating system is available for your Z10 device and download Skype from the BlackBerry World store to easily connect with your family and friends.
Remember this release is still in preview version. We will continue working with BlackBerry over the next months to refine the performance of the Skype app. So keep an eye for any new Skype updates on BlackBerry World for your device!
