New Skype Interface for Windows 8

Are you wondering what Skype’s Windows 8 interface might look like? For sure, we are so many to think about, and each one can use its imagination to design what it can looks like, and guess the design with a fair amount of accuracy.

Indeed, when a new OS , like Windows 8, is launched, developers are strongly encouraged to use the new setup to bring their existing apps into line with the new design aspects of the OS. In this case it is very important for Microsoft, as the firm has had a major overhaul to its Windows OS.

As the new Windows “Modern UI” (previously known as the Metro interface) is such a drastic step away from the older versions of Windows (Windows 7, Vista, XP and older),  Skype, the video calling software, has also to be fully re-designed for the release of the OS version in October 2012.

Some images of the new updated Skype application have been posted, and this new version of Skype seems to align with other existing “Metro style” apps that appear on current Windows mobile devices.

 
 

According to the images, the Windows 8 Skype app displays message status and history on a side bar alongside a People list and Favorites column. The People section features the signature layout, which lists different contacts in tile form.

Despite being unfinished the app is reported to be fairly stable. Presumably this means that an official release date can’t be far off – probably around the time when Windows 8 gets its official release in October.
