Microsoft has unleashed an update to its Skype app for Windows, bringing it to version 2.6. The update includes enhancements to synchronization.
Firstly, the update brings support for syncing calls; when users toggle from their device powered by Windows 8 to another platform, their picked-up calls as well as chat updates made on the secondary platform are recognized by the Windows 8 version also.
Alternatively, you can leave your Windows 8 device running Skype app in the background without having bothered by calls that continue to ring even after being taking up the call on another phone/PC.
Moreover, the update also adds support for syncing the chat history as well as read messages across your devices so you can continue your conversation from anywhere. The app not just offers the best way to stay up-to-date, it also enables you to quickly and seamlessly review your past chat histories on any device. Moreover, you will also be able to export an IM while the recipient is offline and he/she will receive it when signed in.
The company has reported that this latest version of the app is only compatible with devices that run on Windows 8.1 OS. Users can download the updated version of Skype app right from the link provided below.
