Nothing puts a smile on our faces like an update and today’s winner is Skype… for Windows 8. Yeah we’d like to see a little more effort from the Skype team with the Windows Phone version, but it’s great to see Windows 8 get some love too. What’s new you ask? Read on and find out.
Skype for Windows 8 gets bumped to 126.96.36.199 and brings with it some welcomed features. Nothing ground breaking or earth shattering, but it’s bringing parity to the features Skype users have been accustomed to for some time. Like
- The ability to send and receive files
- Performance improvements
- General fixes
Performance improvements and general fixes are things you won’t really notice consciously while using the app, but finally being able to send and receive files is great. If you’re running Skype on an RT device like the Surface RT, the inability to do that probably drove you mad. No more!
Thanks for the tip theefman!
