Interesting thing up for Skype users on Windows 8 – an update is here. Skype for Windows 8 has been updated to give users more control over who can contact them, courtesy contact blocking. Users can now block contacts, if they choose to, thereby deciding their circle of contacts on the popular VoIP platform. Users can block contacts on Skype by first selecting the person's name so it opens up the chat window.
