SMS via Skype is one of the areas we’re working on improving.
We’ve recently launched SMS Connect to Insiders which enables you to connect your Skype desktop client to your Android phone so that you can send and receive SMS from your phone on your Desktop.
Skype also has the ability to send SMS messages to contacts if you have Skype credits.
Please let us know if there’s additional functionality you’re looking for in this area. Otherwise, stay tuned for SMS Connect arriving in the Release builds soon.
