Skype for Modern Windows 2.8: Getting Easier to Use

We have released a new version of Skype for modern Windows. We’ve been focused on making the application easier to use.

There’s a tighter feel to the hub – the modern Skype is designed for touch but we know a lot of our users have mouse and keyboard devices. As a result we are tightening the space between your latest recent conversations, which brings forward the contacts list and makes navigation easier.

It starts up faster – we made a few changes in the background so that Skype loads more quickly on your Windows 8.1 device.

We also made favorites syncing more reliable across devices. Now as you move from one device to another, your favorites list follows you.

To share your feedback or to get the latest news and tips, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and join us on the Skype Community.

Supported operating systems: Windows 8.1.

Take a look at the latest Skype features and a get free upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8.0.
