Home » Here’s how Messaging Everywhere looks on Skype UWP app

Microsoft’s decision to bring Messaging Everywhere to Skype  made many users angry. They quickly rushed to the Feedback Hub and called for Microsoft to bring this feature back before the Anniversary Update is released on August 2nd.

Windows fans are discontent because Messaging Everywhere allowed them to reply to text messages from their phones. Unfortunately for users, Microsoft continues to cling to its decision, carrying out its plans to bring Messaging Everywhere to the Skype UWP app.

Recent leaks offer a glimpse into the upcoming feature that will allow users to sync their SMS via Skype. The leaked images reveal a design similar to the Mobile version of Messaging Everywhere thanks to the presence of the drop-down menu. This menu allows you to switch between Skype and phone at any moment.

Also, if you’re hooked to Skype, you can also choose to set Skype as the default SMS app. If you own a dual-SIM phone, you’ve got nothing to worry about as the app can easily switch between multiple SIMs. You can send messages to multiple recipients as the app supports this feature as well.

As far as its release date is, Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but Insiders should be able to test out Messaging Everywhere on Skype in the upcoming builds.

Speaking of user discontent, many Windows fans are unhappy with Microsoft’s decision because they feel the company is forcing Skype down their throats. Since Messaging Everywhere is a very useful feature, many users will eventually have to get used to the idea of using the messaging program.

This is not the first time Microsoft has taken a decision like this: the company removed PDF Reader from Windows 10 Mobile, forcing Windows phone owners to use Edge instead.
