It took its time but now, Skype for WP (on my Nokia Lumia 920) can now receive Skype calls/message notifications even though it’s not running.

This is a PREVIEW RELEASE and the experiences is said to be “NOT FINAL”.MNBwp_ss_20130103_0003

    Well f**k you than M$. What about WP7.x? This shitty OS does not have multitasking. I think Asha series has better multitasking options.
