    If someone calls you with Skype it will show the call even if you aren't in the Skype app. Works just like they show in the videos.

    Even when Skype is not open, I receive push notifications for messages, and alert for calls. So it works well.

    Works like a charm, only problem is that even when the person stops calling you... your Phone keeps ringing.

    If I get a call on Skype my phone doesn't ring. I only get the call when I'm on the app.

    Same here. I tried signing in both with Skype username and Microsoft account, nothing changed.
    Moreover toast notifications don't always work fine: I just received a notification about a message sent to me a couple of days ago.

    My experience varies; it will work great in the background for a couple days, notifying me of calls and messages, then it will stop and no longer work at all for a few days. I really hope they can get this working consistently... the last update helped. Before that I never got toasts or call notifications.
