Sometime this month, we brought you word that the next Skype for Windows 8 app update would deliver HD (High Definition) video support to the masses, and well, right at the end of mad March, the folks over at Microsoft has announced that Skype for Windows 8 will be updated to version 1.6, where the team behind this app update has managed to address top user feedback while delivering some of the most requested features.
For instance, you will be able to enjoy “contact blocking” now, as you have a higher level of control over just who is able to contact you simply by adding the ability to block contacts. Blocking someone is a cinch, just bring up the command bar, and choose block. Obviously, Skype for Windows 8 1.6 will also bring along with it its fair share of performance improvements in terms of loading speed and reliability, not to mention displaying the correct call error message whenever there is a failed call. You can update your Skype for Windows 8 app via the Windows Store.
