Microsoft is bringing Skype to Amazon’s Fire phone

Microsoft, the newly self-christened “productivity and platforms” company, is making good on its charter by continuing to develop versions of its productivity tools to all platforms, not just Windows. On July 23, Microsoft announced it will offer Skype on the new Amazon Fire phones later this month. This isn’t the first time Microsoft has made its software available on an Amazon platform. Skype already is available for Kindle Fire HD and HDX tablets.

Heads up Amazon Fire Phone owners, if you were wondering when Skype for the Fire Phone would be released, you will be pleased to learn that Skype has recently announced that their messaging app has been made available for the Fire Phone. According to them, the app is “pre-entitled”, which presumably means that it has been preinstalled on the phone, so you won’t have to search for it or download it when you get your hands the device. That being said, we should point out that Skype for the Fire Phone is not the same version of Skype that is available on Android or theAmazon Kindle Fire HDX tablet despite that fact that both devices run a forked version of Android. Nope, instead the version of Skype for the Fire Phone has been optimized for the handset.
