New version of Skype on windows 8
Today a new version of Skype for Windows 8. In the 1.6 release, we continue to address top user feedback and deliver the most requested features.
With this update, Skype team wanted to give our users higher control over who can contact them by adding the ability to block contacts.
To block a contact, select the person’s name to open up the chat window. Bring up the command bar by swiping at the top or bottom of your screen (or right click), and select block. You may also choose whether you want to remove or report the contact request as spam. For a step by step overview, please visit:https://support.skype.com/faq/FA12245/how-do-i-block-or-report-a-contact-in-skype-for-windows-8.
Skype team improved loading speed and reliability across the application. As a result, contacts load speed should now be a lot faster.
Upgrade now via the Windows Store, and share your feedback by discussing what matters on the Skype Community Forum.
