As of today, owners of the BlackBerry Q10 device will get to use Skype's free video and voice calling via the official Skype app.

Available now on BlackBerry World, the Skype app automatically adds your Skype contacts to your BlackBerry phone book when you sign in. Other features include the ability to send text messages and make calls to landlines and mobile phones for a fee.

According to Skype, though, the app available today is still only a "preview version." For users, this means that all of the features are there, but the user experience will likely change.

Skype is available on BlackBerry World for BlackBerry Q10 users only. Those with the BlackBerry Z10 device will have to wait until their operating system is updated to version 10.1 before the app is compatible.
