Today we have released Skype 1.5 for Windows 8. You can download it through the Windows Store. With version 1.5, we have added file sharing, so you can send and receive photos or documents while instant messaging or calling your friends and family.
If you have it install with 1.2 etc UNINSTALL IT (windows 8 – right click and select uninstall) Then install 1.5
