    Has anyone else found this? I did a clean install of iOS 7 GM (Never used any of the beta releases) and I'm finding that I cannot get Skype chat notifications when Skype is in the background. If I receive a message, the app icon will be badged properly, but I don't get a sound or a notification banner.

    Skype does not appear in Notification Center's list at all, but if memory serves, this is actually normal (Skype uses the VOIP APIs to remain running in the background and does not use Apple's push notifications service for its chat notifications). Has anyone else experienced this?

    iOS 7 GM / iPhone 5 CDMA

    I imagine that Skype will need an update to work with iOS 7.

    I'm sure it will (there are also some graphical glitches.) I just want to make sure this is a bonafide iOS compatibility issue and not something specific to my configuration.
