Skype ‘temporarily’ disables People Hub in Windows Phone update

Skype has updated its Windows Phone application with some new features — and the loss of another.

The company yesterday updated its app for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8 with a preview release. Skype was quick to point out that the “experiences are not yet final,” adding that some features “are work-in-progress and may not function consistently.” Those affected features include call reliability and “the ability to receive incoming calls and chat notifications when outside of the app.”

Although Skype didn’t offer too many other details, GeekWire reported yesterday that the app has also lost its integration with Windows Phone’s People Hub.
