Windows Phone 7 May Get FaceTime-Style Video Chat

Posted by at 1:23 pm on January 12, 2011

Microsoft was confirmed this weekend to already have code in place for a FaceTime-like video chat system in Windows Phone 7. A DLL handling media in the OS makes reference to a ‘self portrait camera,’ and a second scoop has also unearthed registry entries for VoIP and SIP support for voice-only features like Skype. Neowin in finding the info noted that all of the features were set to off and didn’t have write permissions to switch them on.

Microsoft at CES said it would add relatively basic features like copy-and-paste text this month, but Windows Phone 8 could arrive as soon as this year if the company is on the promised faster update cycle versus Windows Mobile.
