Microsoft’s Skype has temporarily disabled People Hub, which collates contact information in Windows Phone 8 Preview 2.1 app, as the feature had been ‘causing issues with device stability.’
The firm, which had updated its applications for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8 with some new features, revealed that the ‘experiences are not yet final,’ and added that some features ‘are work-in-progress and may not function consistently.’
Skype said in a statement to GeekWire that it had, "Temporarily disabled the People Hub integration as it was causing issues with device stability."
"We are working with the Windows Phone team to resolve the issue and to enable the integration again in a future release," Skype said.
The People Hub integration is said to be one of Skype’s best features, and it lists a user’s phone number, e-mail addresses, and other relevant contact information.
