So I have Skype on my WP8 and also the app on Windows 8.1 (all updated) and chat notifications display on my phone while they are cleared in the Modern app on Windows 8.1.

 

Anyone else getting that? Annoying!

This has actually been a problem for as long as I remember. It did the same thing when I had Windows 7 installed. :(

 

I read somewhere that if you have contacts mobile phone number though, it works.

Didn't the Skype team bring up this problem last week when asked and said they're working on multiple device sync for messages?

 

Honestly MS had a very good working message system with WLM, all they really had to do when they combined Skype and WLM was to let the WLM backend handle IM and let Skype do the voice/video calls.   Would it have been that hard to do?  They seem to have just dropped the whole WLM service and now the Skype team has to re-implement it all over into Skype.

Message sync is on the way:

 

We also know that people are engaging more and more with each other and with Skype across multiple devices at home, on the go, and at work so we are working to synchronize chat message status across all of your devices so you will know the current status of all of your chats on every device you use to interact with Skype. This capability will be rolling out across clients over the next few months.
