It goes without saying, Microsoft, who owns Skype, will be working to roll out a new version of Skype. This should not come across as a surprise considering how Microsoft, too, has a new Windows operating system for the masses known as Windows 8, so it would be a no-brainer to roll out Skype for Windows 8. It is said that Skype for Windows 8 sees Microsoft focus on how folks are using Skype today, while re-imagining Skype for everyday communications worldwide. If we were to summarize it, one can say that Skype for Windows 8 is simple, fast and beautiful.
It makes communication easier when recent chat messages and calls can be seen the moment you launch Skype, in addition to seeing folks who you come into contact with the most. Adding to your favorite contacts is as easy as a simple tap or click away. Calling landlines or smartphones directly has been simplified as well thanks to the new and modern dial pad. Windows 8 knows whether you are using a desktop, laptop, tablet or convertible PC, as it has Skype running in the background without causing too much of a drain on your battery life, which is a good thing especially when you’re using a mobile device. Are you looking forward to Skype for Windows 8?
