Skype for Mac 6.12 – Improved Stability and Performance

Today we’ve released version 6.12 of Skype for Mac. The release mainly focuses on improving stability and reducing crashes - whether you’re using instant messaging, on an audio call, or on a video call.
Ian Hall's insight:

 We’ve also improved performance at launch time and made low-level changes which will reduce random crashes.

Following the search improvement in the last release, we also further expanded its functionality so you can search for text in status messages. Lastly, we have optimized the Video Messages flow to make it more intuitive.

Well, not really “lastly,” because there are also improvements to the Dial Pad’s suggestion menu, flag tooltips in the conversation view, and several other bug fixes and performance improvements.

We hope you enjoy this update. Download Skype for Mac 6.12 for free today, give it a try, and let us know what you think. To share your feedback or to get the latest news and tips, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and join us on the Skype Community.

Skype - Skype Garage blog - Skype Preview for Windows Phone 8

Skype - Skype Garage blog - Skype Preview for Windows Phone 8 | Skype for Android , WINDOWS PHONE 8, MAC,  iPad 3.5, LINUX and iPhone 5 | Scoop.it


Today we have released a Skype (version 2.0) Preview for Windows Phone 8.

Two weeks ago, we announced that we were working hard on Skype for Windows Phone 8. Just like our bold new experience for Windows 8, the new Skype for Windows Phone will be fast, modern, and beautiful, while still delivering the best of what you've come to expect from Skype.

In this Preview, you'll get all of the Skype basics in the new, modern design along with many of the new features such as integration with the People Hub and a combined contact list with buddies from Windows Live Messenger. Additionally, you'll start receiving some call and message notifications - even when the app is closed and in the background.

Start by downloading the app now from theWindows Phone Store, and if you don't have Windows Phone 8 - be sure to check out the range of new devices here.

Keep in mind that this release is still in Preview state which means that the experiences are not yet final.

We would like to hear your feedback. Discuss what matters on Skype Support Network or just comment in this blog.





Features available in the Skype for Windows Phone 8 are:

Skype contacts in the People Hub. Start your next Skype conversation straight from the People Hub. You can call or start a chat from there to any of your friends on Skype. Login with Microsoft or Skype account. You can now sign into Skype with either a Skype or Microsoft account, making it easier to connect with friends. You can merge your Skype and Microsoft accounts on our desktop applications. Connect with Messenger buddies. When you have logged in with your Microsoft account then you can talk with your friends regardless if they're on Skype or Messenger. You can merge your Skype and Microsoft accounts on the Skype desktop applications. Always reachable. You will now receive Skype calls and 1:1 chat messages even when the app is closed. Incoming call notifications and a Live Tile will notify you of missed conversations. The notifications work even when the device is locked. Calls in background and call holding.

Skype calls continue even as you navigate to other apps on your phone. If someone calls you on your mobile number while you're on a Skype call, you can now put the Skype call on hold and switch between the calls. Visual refresh. A new fresh, modern design that puts the people and conversations that matter most to you front and center. Favorite contacts. Now you can select the most important people and add them to a dedicated Favorites screen. Visual notification of call being held by remote party. See when the person on the other end of the call puts you on hold. Presence in contact list. Skype for Windows Phone now shows presence in the contact list. Skype for Windows Phone has 2 presence states "Available" or "Invisible", legacy presence states are mapped to these.


As this is a preview release, then there are few known issues, which we are working hard to address. They are as follows:
