Microsoft details some Skype on Windows 8.1 features

Microsoft recently released to manufacturing Windows 8.1, the major update to Windows 8 that’s scheduled to launch Oct. 18.

Among the changes coming to Windows 8.1 is the automatic inclusion of Skype built right in

Microsoft gave a glimpse of the pre-release version of Skype for Windows 8.1 in a blog post today. Among the features are the abilities to:

  • Answer calls directly from the lock screen
  • See missed calls and instant messages
  • Choose whether to answer a call with video, audio or an instant message
  • Make calls directly from Internet Explorer

The pre-release version of Skype, like the RTM build of Windows 8.1, is available only to Microsoft’s hardware partners and developers and IT professionals who subscribe to MSDN and TechNet.

Microsoft says it’s continuing to refine Skype for Windows 8.1 heading toward the Oct. 18 launch date.
