Windows 8 Audio Input and Output stops when Skype app is running in background

I'm trying to have a conversation on the Windows 8 Skype app while multitasking on google or in full screen games, but the audio input/output just flat out stops when not staring at the skype app window.  I cant figure out why this happens or how to fix it, and it happens so inconsistantly to the point where sometimes i can have conversations with the skype app in the background and other times i cant.  Any help would be much appreaciated.

I had the same problems with the Windows 8 Skype app. If you use the Skype Windows 8 Desktop app (not the one from the App store), it lets you keep talking even when you're playing fullscreen games.
