With Microsoft revealing windows 8 tablets at D9 conference and Computex 2011 , Manan Kakkar Spotted an unusual video icon on the lock screen.
Looks like Microsoft is planning to have an inbuilt voice service with name “Chatter” to be supported in Windows 8. With Microsoft buying skype, possibility of this feature looks much more prominent.This lock screen features video , messages and chat icon could be a result of inbuilt Windows live messenger and skype hybrid.
Recently MDL user ,NaiveUser who has been dissecting windows 8 since M1 stage revealed that he spotted a dll “ConsentUX.dll”. Acc to the DLL, it has strings like:
Do you want to allow %1 to use your %2 ?
Do you want to you allow Chatter to use your video ?
He also revealed “Chatter” logo :
Its quite possible that Microsoft is building such an app connecting WLM and Skype , also the lock screen will be updated like all the live tiles in Windows 8 tablet interfaces.
