Stop skype updating
What’s worse, a lot of you won’t even notice the constant failed syncing except for the warm phone and depleting battery.So take this as a warning, if you’re battery life is dropping and you’re having some sync issues, check under Settings à Accounts and peep what’s going on behind the curtain.As soon as Skype detects any new updates, it initiates the download process.After downloading the updates, Skype automatically installs them without any user intervention.That’s still a problem, where if you have a Surface, your Windows Phone, your PC and the Xbox, all may ring at one time for an incoming call.What’s worse, answering the call won’t silence the rest.
We would have just deleted our Microsoft Account and tried again but alas, you can’t delete the master account on the phone, nor can you cancel the sync.
Although the entire update detection and installation process remains transparent to the end-users, the application might notify the users that it requires a restart after the successful installation of the updates in order to allow the changes to take effect.
At users’ part, they can disconnect the active calls during the application restart, and can reconnect after it has been restarted successfully with the new interface and/or additional features.
Although the entire automatic update process is integrated in Skype in order to make it easier for the users to work with the application with least intervention, many times users might find it uncomfortable and annoying.
The reason why they might behave so is the new interface.When you install Skype on your computer, by default it is configured to update itself automatically.
