Skype for WP8 Updated; Still No video Message Support

skype-lumia-windows-phoneThe Skype app for Wp8 has just received an update pushing it up to version 2.8 bringing the following improvements:

  • People List Filter – We received feedback from users that they’d like to see Windows Phone contacts and Skype contacts split out in the Skype People List. So, in 2.9 we’ve added a filter so you can see either all your contacts, just Skype contacts, or only available contacts.

  • Home Screen – The Skype home screen has been improved so that users can now pivot through app functions. The Favorite Contact tiles are now smaller, fitting three across on the screen so it is faster for you to contact the people you care about most

Unfortunately the app still doesn’t bring support for Video Messaging, still leaving WP out in the cold in terms of that feature.
