Skype is one of the most used social and communication tools across the world, and with the launch of Windows 8, it has been redesigned with new features. Now the application has received a new update which improves the ringing features.

After Microsoft has bought Skype, it has tried to integrate it in all the services that the Redmond giant could. In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 there are two ways that you can use the app – in desktop or in touch interface mode. I somehow like the good old desktop mode, as I haven’t managed to “understand” and get accustomed with the new one.

According to the changelog of the official Skype app, the new update consists in the fact that Skype will stop ringing in that moment when you answer a call somewhere else. I know that this has been an annoying issue for the desktop version for some years and I’m glad that Microsoft has come up with a fix for the touch version.

Some previous important updates that Skype for Windows 8 had received fixed some crashing problems and also the ability to manage contacts easier and to mute instant messaging sounds has been included.
