Skype as we have previously discussed, has evolved into a major app, and Microsoft has added a lot of features for users. Windows Insiders got the first glimpse of the new app, but its now available for all on Windows 10.
With the launch of the latest Creators Update for Windows 10, Microsoft is making the latest version of Skype available for all users. It brings a number of new features, and should improve the general Skype experience.
Biggest Skype Feature Updates
With the latest version of Skype, contacts are easier to find, and the people app helps bring them to focus. Skype will display the number of mutual contact you share, and that makes finding someone that much easier.
The messaging features within the newest Skype also gives users new updates. It includes searchable chats, keyboard shortcuts, and lets users send SMS messages with Skype Credit. All of this makes Skype a lot more fun.
Group Calling & Calling Updates
If you do a lot of group calling, you will immediately notice the big updates on the Skype app. It has been newly redesigned, and it brings the viewers on the call much closer together. Try it once, and you’ll never want to go back to the previous version.
Lastly, calling features have been updated on the Skype app. Users can now switch the microphone and camera during the call, and that means you won’t have to hang up and call back the party. This was a huge feature that Skype has implemented for users.
Update your Skype app on Windows 10 today. It’s bundled with Windows 10, so its worth the update today.
