Skype updated to v2.8, brings enhancements and boosts performance but no Video Messaging yet
Skype for Windows Phone got updated to v2.8 but still no video mesaging feature (though this is already available on its iOS and Android versions).
So what’s new in v2.8:
Start and Resume Performance – Improving the start and resume experience has been the main focus of this release. It’s now much faster to return to the app when it’s in the back stack. If you open the app and then hit the start button or turn off the screen, pressing the back or power button now gets you back into the Skype app much more quickly. You’ll also see some general improvements to the start experience.
Live Tile Count - Based on user feedback, we’ve changed the Live Tile notifications to show only the number of unread conversations, rather than the total number of unread messages.
South Korea Availability – Skype for Windows Phone 8 is now available to download from the Windows Phone Store in South Korea.
