When it comes down to your Windows 8 device, Skype provides the most integrated solution for video, audio, and text messaging. The application itself isn’t yet perfect, and I constantly find myself having to jump into Google+ Hangouts to get multi-person conference calls done correctly, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t working every day to make it better than the last. Recently an update has been pushed for Skype on Windows 8 – let’s take a look and see what has changed.

According to the Windows Store, the application has simply received a collection of “general bug fixes” and nothing more. Upon launching the app itself, we can’t see exactly what has been fixed, but that might just be due to the fact that Skype hasn’t been very buggy for us.

Skype still doesn’t serve as the best option for multi-person conferencing, but is a great way to catch up with friends and family in a one on one chat. We are happy to see app fixes trickling down for Skype, and hope to see more features and improved usage in the near future.
