Skype Offers Speedier Syncing on Windows 8.1

Skype offers Speedier Syncing on Windows 8.1, a new update for users of Microsoft's latest OS remedies one of the multiplatform software's biggest annoyances and ensures that mobile and desktop Skype clients are no longer out of sync. Microsoft is promising a smoother Skype experience on Windows 8.1 with an update that does a better job syncing Skype across different platforms. Skype 2.6, available now at the Windows Store, will help stop Skype apps from displaying mismatched information. Further, Microsoft plans to roll out roaming for Favorites contact lists and notifications that follow users on the devices that they are currently using, eliminating duplicate notifications on an unused smartphone or tablet, for instance. Skype 2.6 also addresses an irritating quirk that has plagued users who run Skype on multiple devices. The update follows a recent batch of enhancements that Microsoft issued for Skype on Outlook.com, the company's popular online email service. A new browser plug-in for PC users enables HD video calls directly from within the inbox, and a separate plug-in enables support for Safari under Mac OS X.
