    Skype Intergrated Metro App on 8.1

    Hi, The Skype Integrated Metro only works intermittently. I can see the Caller but they can sometimes see but not hear me. I've checked sounds settings within the App without success.
    No such problem when using the Desktop Skype.
    Might the combination of Metro App and Desktop version be causing trouble? Should the Desktop version be uninstalled?
    I would welcome any assistance please.

    Just tried the Logitech Web Cam software and found a log-jamb with the sound slider. Don't know why but I've now got it working again with both App and Desktop versions and back in business again.
    Thanks for the reply.

    I have both versions installed on my 8.1 desktop, Asus Vivo Tab Smart and Surface Pro 2 and they all work well. I use them daily for a 4-way video chat using my Skype Premium account.
