Today we’ve released an update for Skype for Windows Phone 8. In this release we’ve focused on quality and performance improvements as we continue to build a great app that puts conversations first. Alongside this, we’ve incorporated user feedback and made improvements to the way contacts are managed, and the Skype home screen layout.
The main updates in Skype for Windows Phone 8 version 2.9 are:
- People List Filter – We received feedback from users that they’d like to see Windows Phone contacts and Skype contacts split out in the Skype People List. So, in 2.9 we’ve added a filter so you can see either all your contacts, just Skype contacts, or only available contacts.
- Home Screen – The Skype home screen has been improved so that users can now pivot through app functions. The Favorite Contact tiles are now smaller, fitting three across on the screen so it is faster for you to contact the people you care about most.
Get the updated version now from the Windows Phone Store.
