Skype will soon release an app for Windows Phone 8.1 that will allow users to upgrade their regular calls to video calls and use personal assistant Cortana to start Skype calls using voice control. The app will integrate into Windows Phone 8.1, adding a video button to the phones standard dialer menu that will activate its camera, turning a cellular call to a Skype video call. Skype will be integrated with Cortana, meaning users wont need to enter the app before using voice control. Instead, the phrase Skype, get [insert contact] on video can be used to start a Skype call from a Windows Phone 8.1s home screen or menus.
