Skype’s futuristic software was first introduced to the world in December 2014. Skype’s Translator app that provides instantaneous translation of both, spoken and written languages, is now ready to be offered worldwide almost after six months of its first preview.

Earlier, when the app was in its preview stage, users had to sign up via the Skype Translator preview page. This was limited to users of Windows and Windows Phone OS and was available in just two languages; Spanish and English, along with forty instant languages. Now, Microsoft has removed the signup requirement for masses to preview, translating languages like English, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin in real-time. Meanwhile, under Instant Messaging, the app supports fifty languages.


The Redmond-based firm is planning to launch a distinct app specially designed for India. Filipp Seljanko, Skype spokesman, said the precise Skype app will be optimised for India’s mobile networks to offer better experience over 2G and 3G networks.

Skype’s Translator app is available only on Windows for now, and users will need a Windows 8 or Windows 10 OS for it to work. You can download the app here.
