We saw a hands on video with the new Messaging Skype app (courtesy of WMPU).
And now the download link to download it from the Windows Store is now available..
Download Messaging Skype Preview app
I'm not sure if Microsoft intended to make this available to the public. So they could take down the link if this was a mistake.
If you do decide to download and give it a try, do remember that the app is still in its early stage of development. So it is very buggy and unstable.
You can check out the hands on video again from WMPU:
