Skype for Windows 8/RT updated to version 1.6, brings contact blocking

Skype for Windows 8 has been updated again, this time bringing in contact blocking.


This update contains:

Contact blocking

With this update, we wanted to give our users higher control over who can contact them by adding the ability to block contacts.

To block a contact, select the person’s name to open up the chat window. Bring up the command bar by swiping at the top or bottom of your screen (or right click), and select block. You may also choose whether you want to remove or report the contact request as spam.

Performance improvements

We have improved loading speed and reliability across the application. As a result, contacts load speed should now be a lot faster.

Upgrade now via the Windows Store, and share your feedback by discussing what matters on the Skype Community Forum.

Additionally in this release, we have fixed a number of issues from the previous release.
