Skype can now send email notifications for missed calls, messages

Microsoft has rolled out another way for you to stay on top of your Skype notifications: email. As spotted by Windows United, you can now receive email alerts for missed calls and messages in Skype.

The settings appear to be turned on by default, which could prove to be a bit annoying for those who don't really need email alerts for every missed call or message. They are simple enough to turn off, however. Both toggles are located at the bottom of the "Notifications" section of Skype's settings.

The settings are a relatively small addition, but they're likely to be useful for anyone who relies on Skype for at least a portion of their messaging but might not be plugged in at all times.

We're seeing the toggles on Skype version, which is available via the Microsoft Store now.
