Skype app for Windows 8.1 now lets you be invisible, offers sign out option

Microsoft has rolled out a new version to the Skype app for Windows 8.1, adding a few new options for those who do not want to be disturbed. With the new Skype app update, you can now set yourself as invisible and you can now sign out. Here’s what Microsoft has to say about these two new features:

  • Invisible – When you select to be invisible you can still get incoming messages but without others knowing you’re around to pick them up. Think of it like your phone – SMSes come through but you can respond now or later.
  • Sign out – But we know sometimes you just want to not get any notifications at all. With this release we brought back sign out. While more and more applications are moving to being always on and always connected, it’s an interesting challenge to balance the user need to be always plugged in while managing intrusion.

Microsoft wants users to remain “plugged in” without becoming overwhelmed or disturbed with notifications. These two new features are designed to fix just that. Hit the download link below to snag the updated app!
