Skype released updates for Windows desktop and Windows Phone 8

Skype announced updates for Windows Phone 8 and Windows desktop. 

The official Skype blog has the change notes from the new 2.6 version of the app, indicating that it is a rather minor update. But the Microsoft business unit noted that it is still trying to address some key issues with the Windows Phone 8 app, with fixes to come at a later date.

Skype 6.3 for Windows, which works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, is available here. This update includes no new features but instead “improves the quality and stability of the application.” 

Skype for Windows Phone 8 adds the following fixes:

- Increased chat reliability.
- Increased call notification reliability.
- Improvements in call reliability to phone numbers.
- Fix for occasional missing message preview in the recent conversations list.
