Skype video messaging coming today to Android and iOS

There has been word for a while that Skype would be adding video messaging to its app, and it looks like the feature is finally going to roll out today to Android and iOS devices. The rollout isn't coming to everyone though, the rollout will be relegated to the US, UK, and a few other countries...

I have Nokia lumia 920 wich is Microsoft powered device, and every new Microsoft-app like Skype comes first to iOs and Android with full functionality. for e.g. i can't logout skype in lumia 920. i don't understand what the hell is going on.

But you have live tiles! Seriously though, MS isn't good to their customers. You have a nice piece of hardware but the OS hasn't been well thought through...

I agree: MS should take care of updates for it's own platform (Win 8, RT, WP8), before catering to iOS or Android fans.

However, maybe WP8 will get something better than the other two, so lets not be hasty with our judgements...

How it's possible for an application from MS being released first on the competition?!?
Well done MS for (not) helping your platform to evolve. This is more relevant when you hear from google that they'll not support WP (no YouTube app for WP for instance) and now MS joins the party not supporting it's own platform... well done!

Google does this all the time. If your OS is worth it, ms will get around to it eventually.

Oh, Microsoft... I you were a human being I would beat the sh.t of you.

Why on Earth do you support everyone else first and then (if at all) your own customers? No wonder that your Windows Phone is so poorly adopted.
