Installed on my phone, pinned as a live tile and then this happens:
I get a message on my desktop PC, read, reply, check my Lumia 1 hour later and it shows 60 new messages even though they are old messages.
Why doesn't it understand that I've already read these messages?
Same with Facebook integration on Windows 8, it will keep showing notification even though I already checked them using web browser.

With Facebook it grabs the data differently. I can read it in the web browser and it will still pop up on my phone. Heck, notifications don't even sync on WP7 Skype that well. Probably something MS will improve on with regards to Skype as they own it now.

If you just installed the app the messages are new to the phone. The count are the messages in your in box. If the messages are in your in box they show on the tile count until you open the app. This is the same with a new email account as well. It's not a issue it's just the saw it's done on WP. If you just installed the app how is the app supposed to know if you have read the messages?
Also keep in mind these apps are not supposed to be running in the background. All they do is a simple push Notification from the server telling the app that is has received a message. If it was continually connected it would eat batter like crazy.

It's just a ****ty Skype implementation, that is all. And they surely will fix it one day, only the question is, when will that be?

Any tile you pin generally turns in to a live tile when you have a notification or two. So in an ideal world it should show you "1" on your Skype tile for a missed call or IM. However, this is a beta version of Skype. So I won't be surprised if some of us have it working, some of us have it temperamental and the rest just don't have it. For instance, when I used Skype, it did nothing. I always appeared offline to everyone unless I had the app open. So I just uninstalled it. It drains battery for me, probably trying to stay online but miserably failing at every attempt.

Even if it's in beta, feedback gotta go somewhere and why not here where it can be discussed further? Granted people have to realize that if it is beta, the issue should be addressed differently, rather than a complaint about why it's not working properly.

No amount of petitions/posts/threads/complaints will fix Skype. So why do we need to keep beating this dead horse. When Microsoft/Skype is ready, they will fix it. And I repeat, if he can do a better job, then by all means go ahead. I do not think Microsoft/Skype is saying "Hey look at how crappy Skype is. Lets all sit back and laugh at them". I'm pretty sure they are working as hard as they can on this.
Do you think that ALL they have to see about Skype??
You people need to get out of the bubble you are living it. Say Thank you and appreciate what they have provided so far.

And you better be glad that people are *****ing and moaning, because once that stops it will mean one thing - that they moved to another platform that offers them all that is broken or missing on WP.

Apple said Siri is beta when they showed it and said they will make it better with time. Skype beta will be available - wasn't said. It will stay beta for more than three months - wasn't mentioned. Its about being a multimillion giant and still being transparent. This doesn't put me off. However, me shutting up and sitting isn't a way around it either. I have used more Windows smartphones than Ballmer. Seen all iterations and thrown my money at it. I have to praise the company and not say anything about its ill efforts? Okay as you say.
