[W8] Downloading Skype, only available in Arabic.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying to to install Skype and though the Website there is no download button, and in the Microsoft Store I can only get it in Arabic.

Anyone else had this issue?

I have not had that problem. For the following, I'm assuming that you are in the US.

First, if you go to skype.com there is a link for "Get Skype" and then download Skype for Windows 8.

Are you sure that you are downloading the official version of Skype from the Microsoft Store? If you are, have you installed the Arabic language pack from Microsoft?

I cant download Skype for W8 from the Skype webpage. If I press "Download Skype" I'm forwarded to this page. http://apps.microsoft.com/webpdp/en-GB/app/skype/5e19cc61-8994-4797-bdc7-c21263f6282b - and there is no download button there.

When I try the Microsoft Store, I only get it in Arabic.

I'm in Iceland, not the US but I want the English version.

In the Windows Store, if you go to the right sidebar and go to Settings then Preferences there will be a toggle for "Make it easier to find apps in my preferred language". Try toggling that switch and seeing what happens.
