    Note that if it still doesn't give you notifications, then uninstall and when you then run it for the first time, make sure you keep it open for several minutes before changing apps.

    From the Skype support boards the app has to register itself for notifications and this can sometimes take a while to work.

    Personally I think this is pretty crappy given that it just works on things like iOS, but it helped fix notifications on my phone.

    Skype for WP8 gets updated with new features. Pure silence.

    Skype gets a beta on another platform. E-RAGE!!!!!

    I was going to say the same thing. Of course instead of being excited some of the doom and gloom patrol are making up new reasons why the app is bad in their eyes.

    Yep, log out possible, still no background functionality..... Sad, Microsoft....
    8X here....Skype *is* listed in Background tasks, 'advanced' section ie "These apps can run in the background, and you may not be able to block all of them". Likely a good thing to keep everything in sync..eg notifications etc.

    That might mean you have it where you appear offline.

    Probably still sucks, glad they put back people hub integration.

    How are the notifications coming? or not coming?

    i have a Lumia 620 and Skype is listed on "background" when i long press the back button...and i do receive notifications...so i really don't see what's the problem some pplz are having here .-.
    same thing with WhatsApp...many complaints but it works perfectly fine for me .-.

    edit: stupid question, but it matters - when u guys leave Skype, you click the back button or windows button?

    Ok, clarification of the confusion from my earlier comments: was able to test it again, message notifications and calls work fine. No idea why it didn't work this morning. It works like a charm now. 😊

    It's about 3:15am in the East US... I don't have the time to test the client. Just wanted to grab the update and go see if I was able to log out... which I did.
    And, by 'log out' you mean 'switch accounts' or actually hit a button saying "log out" or "sign out"?

  19. holzlondon's Avatar
    By clicking "switch accounts", you log out and are brought back to the log in page you get when you start the app for the first time.

    I wonder how the people hub integration works when you switch accounts often...

    I don't use Skype integration in People Hub. Whenever I connect Skype to MS, I get syncing issues.
    And to the other user asking about how they close Skype: back button. ALWAYS the back button.

    i ask it because if they back button, it wont stay background...so perhaps those who say it doesent work background are not using windows button

    if you hit the back button, the app is removed from the background and you no longer receives any calls. If you hit the windows button, the app continues to run in the background and you'll be able to receive calls/notifications.
