    With the capability of uap:Capability Name=“chat” in your app’s package manifest, the chat capability allows apps to read and delete Text Messages. This capability also allows apps to store chat messages in the system data store. This capability is required to use some APIs in the Windows.ApplicationModel.Chat namespace. The chat capability must include the uap namespace when you declare it in your app’s package manifest as shown below.

    To get access to call history, “PhoneCallHistoryPublic” is new with 10586 SDK. The phone call history is an API that is inside the Windows.ApplicationModel.Chat namespace.
