Skype's new Windows 8.1 version

There is going to be a new Skype for the new Windows 8.1 and we have got details on how this new Windows Phone 8.1-comaptible Skype app will work. This major OS update by Microsoft was announced only a day earlier and we already had the introduction for the Skype’s voice command support. But knowing there is going to be something new about the app with the new Windows is just not enough.

A press released has been issued by Skype itself which has leaked a couple of videos and changelog and from this we get clear details of what exactly the new app will bring. Skype integration with the Windows Phone 8.1 is going to be the most notable addition and because there is going to be a system-wide support, you will be able to switch from voice calls to free video Skype calls straight from your in-call screen. In case you want to see a demo video, you can find it on the internet. Skype for Windows Phone 8.1 will also integrate with People hub and this will allow users to makje HD video Skype calls straight from the phonebooks. In addition, Microsoft's intelligent assistant Cortana can also be used to make calls through Skype even when your hands are busy.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
