Tried Skype on your Windows Phone? Did it suffer any nagging?
The latest update got some improvements with bug fixes for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows 8. Sadly, with the new update, the People Hub Skype integration has been detached from the app.
They say the reason is to be a part of attaining system stability. The removal is not permanent; they will get it back with future updates.
People Hub is a top notch functionality that act as a multi level contact book where we can do mailing, texting, chatting and all the other social media updates, whatever it is, like Facebook, Twitter , Linkedln and the like. The Skype window on the contact hub really had the pull for the app, but since this Windows app is in preview version we can’t expect it to be in a stable form.
Hope the final version would be without any hiccups. One notable feature of the app is the push notification, where we don’t need to always ‘on’ the app for getting incoming call alerts.
With the new update, the notification and calling functionality will raise the performance bar to a much more fluid level. Also the update puts some polishing to Chat keyboard’s autocomplete and autocorrect features.
After the acquisition of Skype, Microsoft is ongoing with their process of swapping users from the Windows Live Messenger.
