Windows 7: SMS Connect now rolling out to Skype Insiders with preview

SMS Connect now rolling out to Skype Insiders with preview

We are excited to introduce SMS Connect to Skype Insiders!

Starting today, SMS Connect will be gradually rolled out to Skype Insiders on Android phones with 8.30 builds and higher.

With this new Insider build for Android you will be able to pair your Windows PC or Mac (both must be on the Skype Insiders build as well) to your phone to start receiving your SMS conversations to your desktop. No more grabbing your phone every time it buzzes with a new SMS, you'll be able to respond directly from your desktop!

With SMS Connect on your PC or Mac you can...
  • Read & respond to 1:1 and group SMS conversations
  • Receive MMS content (photos & videos)
  • Start new conversations
Lets get you started:
  • In the Skype app on your Android phone, tap on your profile picture/Settings/Messaging/SMS and Enable SMS Connect
  • Follow the steps through the prompts to pair your desktop and off you go

Please note SMS Connect is a desktop only experience, continue to use your default messaging app on your Android phone to view your SMS conversations.

We are still working on a number of improvements and will ship updates through future Insider builds. Please give it a try and let us know how it works on your device. You can provide your feedback here in the forums, within the app by gently shaking your phone or by going to Skype -> Help & Feedback.

Thank you for all you do support Skype.
