Skype needs to update so Windows 8 people can easily use skype. I can not use the share screen option, or the group chat.

I have been using screen sharing in the past. I tried to use screen sharing a few days ago and got a message saying that I had to upgrade to Premium to do so. I upgraded to premium as I neded the screen sharing function.

The function worked 4 times and now it is out of commission again. The entry in the dropdown menu stays gray. any ideas or help?

thank you

Share screen on the win 7 Skype works fine on windows 8 , I like the win 8 ui but it really needs the share screen. I hope we see this soon, bit worried that we might be charged some token fee for a 'paid version'. Seems it's the way of the future , still I rather everyone paid a buck that a few pay 100.00
