Skype has just rolled out a brand new version of Skype for modern Windows, where you will be given the ability to manage your availability considering just how hectic your schedule can get in the long run. For instance, if you opt to be Invisible, you are still able to receive incoming messages, although to the world out there, you are not around to pick up those messages, making it somewhat akin to your SMS inbox on your handset – you can reply at your own leisurely pace.
Apart from that, there are moments out there when you simply want to disconnect from the world, and what better way to do so than to sign out completely? This option has been reintroduced, and considering how there is a growing number of apps that intend for you to remain on always, one can always take the pro-active step of being plugged out from any form of intrusions.
How do you like getting more control over them messaging apps that are so prevalent these days? It can be rather refreshing to get out from time to time and disconnect yourself from the virtual world in order to hook up to the real world with actual, physical people. [Press Release]
