Yesterday, we brought you word of a new version of Skype for Windows Phone 8, and while there were no official changelog listed, the entire update was available for the entire world to download. Which is a good thing, of course. It is nice to know however, just what we are getting after the installation process, and we are glad to bring you word that the good folks over at Skype themselves have listed down the changes in the latest version of Skype for Windows Phone 8.
This particular release saw work done on improving the overall reliability and performance of the application, with plenty of attention paid to background notifications and calling. The People Hub integration has been disabled on a temporary basis as it has been pinpointed as the cause of device stability, and hopefully integration will be made available sometime down the road after more kinks are ironed out.
Other changes include an updated chat keyboard with improved autocomplete/autocorrect, buddies from Windows Live Messenger being labeled in the People list, an additional option to enable toast notifications for Windows Live Messenger buddies, and improved call reliability among others. Are you loving your freshly updated Skype for Windows Phone 8?
