Today we have released Skype 1.5 for Windows 8. You can download it through the Windows Store.
With version 1.5, we have added file sharing, so you can send and receive photos or documents while instant messaging or calling your friends and family.
We’re listening to our users, and file sharing has been one of the biggest features they’ve been asking for in Skype for Windows 8.
With this release, we have also improved performance and stability of the application, focusing specifically on accelerating Skype start up and loading of content.
We are committed and excited to improve and add to Skype for Windows 8, meeting new user needs and improving the overall experience and feature set. Look for more in our next release.
