With today's update, Skype users will be able to carry their conversations over to the Apple Watch by responding with speech to text, emoticons, or canned responses. Here's the full breakdown of what's new in Skype for iPhone version 5.12.2:
- Reply to messages on your Apple Watch using voice to text, emoticons or quick prepared responses.
- Start chats with your favourite contacts on your Apple Watch so you can do more on the go
- General Improvements
Obviously the messaging experience with Skype on your Apple Watch isn't going to be as robust as the full app, but this looks like a pretty good way for users to keep up with less involved conversations nonetheless.

The first (as far as i can see) main messaging app to get Apple Watch support. Which is a shame because I rarely use Skype to message, waiting on Facebook messenger, Hangouts and Whatsapp Sent from the iMore App
