    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.
    yeps i know XD but i wanted to know if the pplz who claims it doesent work background knows it XD

    I believe that on this version if you have notifications working properly you receive calls/notifications even if you close out using the back button. At least that's what my testing showed.

    The supposed state is that you close it with back key it still rings whenever a call coming in.

    People hub integration is quite subtle. If you have a John Smith in your [Outlook/Live/Google/Facebook/....] people, and you have a John Smith in Skype, they'll be automatically linked with each other, this can be seen under the person's name, and as a contact option below.

    Then you can launch skype from the person you want to contact. Here's a screenshot:

    otherwise you can manually link a skype username to a contact in the people hub

    easiest way to do this is to just filter your contact list so you only see skype contacts
    that way youll know which ones arent linked yet and just start linking them

    Make sure you have notifications on too. Mine were turned off, even though I had them on before the update.

    I installed the update and still nothing worked, I was always shown as offline. I then uninstalled, rebooted phone and installed again. Everything now works perfectly. I am always shown as online and get instant notifications for messages and receive calls.

    Id like to see the following happen next:

    Minor update: Add seen/read option like Whatsapp has + Add picture and video sending
    Major Update: Bake the whole Skype experience into the phone and have it work like iMessage/Facetime does on iPhone without the need for additional app.

    Id guess the major update wont come until windows Phone 8.5 arrives.

    And sure there is probably loads more features people want but for me that above would be awesome.

    I prefer not to have that received note. If they implement it, I am sure it will pissed off a lot of people.

    OK, strange phenomenon: I have one single contact connected by Skype and Messenger, that is my wife.

    I have also connected my Skype and Microsoft Accounts.

    Now, when my wife writes me a messenger message, I get it both with Skype and on Messenger on my phone.

    Will this change when Messenger finally fully dies on 8th April?

    So, since I updated Skype I havn't been able to use it at all. When I start it up, it will shut itself down within 10 seconds, usually faster if I actually try to do something with it. I have reinstalled twice and tried rebooting the device too, but no luck. It didn't do this prior to the update.

    This is one a Lumia 920. Anyone else having similar problems? I tried to look if anyone reported the same on comments, but it seems I'm mostly alone with this.

    You can fix this by going onto your profile, click three dots in bottom right corner, click on notifications and turn of "messenger messages" then they wont appear in skype.

    It also seems like none of the new features (switch accounts, people-hub integration) works either in addition to the app shutting down near instantly. Not gonna do a hard reset, even if it was the only potential fix left when reboot and reintalling several times has no effect..

    From Joe Belfiore (source):
    "Skype uses WP8 VOIP system for bkgd- without eating battery. You get calls via the native phone UI even if skype's not running"

    Can someone confirm that if you close out of Skype using the back button and not the Windows button that you do not receive Skype calls?

    Anyone else had a hit on battery life with this version? I normally have about 50% spare at the end of the day. Last night I was down to below 20% by the time I got home.

    Yeah, but then I get rid of notifications for all other skype contacts. I'll live with double notifications.

    I think that's how I tested it last night and it worked, but not sure. Gonna try it again, and will post results...

    UPDATE: YES it works even after having closed Skype by hitting the "Back" button. I was on the start screen, without any apps in the "multitasking" history running, and I am able to receive a call without any issues.

    BUT... I have the green screen when I try to use video..... Wasn't there a thread about that somewhere?

    So when you hit switch accounts what exactly happens? Does it not log you out? Does it crash?

    After several reinstalls I got the people-hub integration and logojt to work, but this aint much when it still crashes on me all the time :D
