With the release of the Windows 8.1 Update, the Skype team has also put out an update for the Modern version of the voice-over-IP and instant messaging app.
Version 2.7 of the Modern Skype app has brought back the Invisible status option, allowing you to remain invisible while connected, and yet receive any chat messages. The Sign Out option has also returned, which means there’s now no need to go the unusually drastic way of unlinking your Skype account from your Microsoft account just to sign out from the app.
Along with the ability to pin the app to the taskbar, Modern Skype is definitely getting better. We hope this trend continues.
