- Added Topic Prefix support.
- Connectivity issues on 3G with some phones fixed. If you still have problems and only can use the app on WiFi please post feedback on the support forum so we can further fix the issue.
- Miscellaneous bug fixes.
We want to remind everyone that the correct place to report errors is to do it in the support forum.
Reporting errors in Windows store reviews is not helpful because you will not have enough space to post detailed info, we won't be able to respond to you, and will likely never see it if it gets buried under other reviews.
Change Log : Today we’re pleased to introduce some exciting new capabilities in the Skype 2.19 update for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1.

Cortana is the new personal assistant on Windows Phone 8.1 who keeps you closer to the people and things who matter most. Now you can start Skype video and audio calls by simply asking Cortana something like “Skype get Lara Kingwell on the screen”. Cortana is currently available in the US on Windows Phone 8.1.
