The new features are available to anybody running Windows 8.1.It seems a little silly that there wasn’t an option to sign out before, but at least things are improving. Recently Skype’s modern version was also updated to so you can pin it to your desktop taskbar, which is great.
I’ve just recently switched from Skype desktop to modern, and it’s been doing the job just fine. What about you guys? Any features you’d like to see implemented?
To force the update, head into the Store, swipe from the right, Settings, App Updates, Check for updates. And if you haven't downloaded the Modern app for Windows 8, you can grab it here in the Store.
