Microsoft said that this move is but an evidence of the commitment to deliver the best possible Skype experience across any platform in order to bring users closer to the people they care about most.


As we all know, Skype is now available on all kinds of devices – PCs and tablets, Xbox Ones, TVs and smartphones of all shapes and sizes.

Microsoft also talked about their working relationship with Amazon and when the tie-up started. The company said, they?ve been working with Amazon over the last couple of years to bring Skype to its Kindle Fire HD and HDX tablets, and they?re delighted to announce that Skype will be available on Fire phone when it becomes available later this month.
