UWP Skype Preview app for Windows 10 Mobile has been leaked - here's how to get it

It's been almost two months since Microsoft released Skype UWP Preview (now only called Skype Preview) in Windows 10 for PCs build 14316, promising a version of the app that would be compatible with Windows 10 Mobile later. While the firm still hasn't released it for Mobile, a build of the app has been posted to XDA Developers.

As you can see from the screenshots above, it's currently a pretty minimal design. Of course, the app isn't exactly public yet, so anything is subject to change.

Here's how to get Skype Preview v11.6.26:

  1. Go to Settings -> Update & security -> For developers and turn on Developer Mode.
  2. Download the APPX file from here.
  3. If you downloaded it to your PC, you need to get it onto your phone. It's too big to email (~75MB), so you can either do a wired transfer or throw it up in OneDrive.
  4. Next, open it on your phone. You can do this through the File Explorer app or directly from the OneDrive app, depending on how you transferred the file.
  5. When it asks you if you want to install the app, say yes!

WARNING: This app is not available to the public for a reason and it will overwrite the existing Skype app. Install Skype Preview at your own risk.
