[Link] Skype relief is notifications only on the device you’re currently using

 

Joseph Keller on Skype’s new feature:

Skype will soon be doing more to curb notification noise on your devices. The company has announced a new feature, known as “active endpoint” that will contain chat notifications to the device that you’re using, rather than alerting every single device. For instance, if you’re chatting using Skype on your phone, your computer and tablet will remain silent.

I would love this feature in iMessage and FaceTime on iOS and OS X. I am all for devices in sync and currently with iOS 8 when I get a call or message coming through, it will alert me on all my devices but if iCloud could detect which device I was currently working on and mute the other devices, that would be a great feature.
