Anyone know how to prevent skype messages from coming in through the Skype app AND the messaging hub? Everytime someone skypes me, it's like the fourth of july at my desk.
On my desktop computer, I get a notification from my skype for desktop, another one from my windows 8 messaging hub, and a third one from the skype metro app.
Then my wp8 starts buzzing, the message comes in through the Messages app, and also through the skype app.
To top it all off, after I read the message in one of those 5 places, the "new message" icon does not go away in any of the other places!
So, i've solved this issue on my desktop (I removed skype from the messaging hub and uninstalled the metro skype, so i only get it once on my skype for desktop), but I'm still getting it twice on my phone (once on skype and once on the messages app)

I think you'll find this is the point of having Skype everywhere... ;)
Perhaps there needs to be a bluetooth proximity module that senses all devices are in the same room and so only sounds one. Something to patent. Except this is now prior art.

same issues with other IM's I have on desk/phone, both go off (yahoo, gtalk, jabber, etc) I don't use Skype right now so I'm now sure how it would know which device you are infront of.. if both are background and you get a message, the point is for it to tell you...

Yup. this is very annoying. The same happens to me with facebook messages as well.
God damnit Microsoft. Fix it. Once I noticed on facebook "Notifications are disabled as your are using Facebook Chat on another device"... Or something like that...

I've got the same issue here. In the MSN Messenger day once it sensed you were replying on desktop it would stop buzzing on the phone, Now it buzzes everywhere and like you on the Phone for both Skype and Live account message notification. I don't see an option in Skype to play nice. I'm sure we're not alone here and hoping GDR2 addresses this. lol....
