2 Days before it was supposed to Skype for Windows 8 has launched although the website still not updated.
MSFT announced earlier that Skype will be available on the 26th but already released ahead of the schedule. Skype is now listed in the Store available for Windows 8 and RT users. If the app isn’t available in your region just yet, it should pop up sometime in the next few hours.
Integration with the People app is included, and Skype runs in the background as you’d expect in Windows 8. This is the second piece of the Skype and Microsoft puzzle, following the release of a Windows Phone client earlier this year. Skype is now building an Xbox version that will likely debut next year.
