Microsoft today introduced Skype Bots - a new way to bring expertise, products, services and entertainment into your daily messaging on Skype. Skype Bots are available through messaging today but will also be available for audio and video calling in the future.

Each Bot will enhance your Skype experience in its own way, bringing a new dimension into your everyday Skype chats by helping turn your ideas and plans into actions.

Previews Released Today:
● A new Skype client, available on Windows, Android, iPhone and iPad brings the Skype Bot experience to all of our customers.
● A preview of Skype Bots for you to experience and to provide us with feedback (currently available in Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and US).
● A new Skype developer program at to get started building Bots right away, and we also hope you will join us at a May hackathon to create innovative bots on the Skype Bot platform.

At today’s Build 2016 conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella showcased how Cortana can help you get things done directly in your Skype chats. Cortana is able to proactively help you find information, manage your calendar and connect to other Bots that are relevant to you.

Preview Bots are available in the latest versions of Skype for Windows Desktop, Android, iPhone and iPad. Take a look at the video below for more details on how they work...

You can download Skype for iPhone from the App Store for free.
