Skype launches new desktop preview

Skype Preview New

Skype Preview New

The truth is only for testers. This is probably because the team wants users running the Anniversary Update or the Creators Update to stick with the new Skype UWP app, which has already started to receive some of these new features over the past few weeks.

The Skype desktop preview for desktops has the same features and a similar design as to what's found on the new mobile experience, but it is specifically designed with desktop in mind, to take full advantage of the larger screen, according to Microsoft. Group calling also includes support for real-time screen and photo sharing, as well as emoji reactions, which display as a temporary overlay on your screen, which is visible to all call attendees. There are other innovations. If you're using Windows as Microsoft intended it, that is, with Windows 10 being automatically updated to the latest version, you won't be able to get this new version of Skype. You can use the classic theme or go with a dark theme.

Skype, in its endeavors to remain significant, has presented another overhaul for its desktop application that looks vigorously roused from Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook.

Microsoft is testing out its new Skype mobile interface in a desktop preview of the company's communication app. You can also now quickly jump back into conversations where you were @mentioned to see how people reacted to what you've said, rather than scrolling through the whole long chat.

The Skype Desktop preview app does not yet support translator calls, allow users to send video messages or put calls on hold/merge incoming calls with existing calls.

How can you get the Skype desktop preview?

In addition, the new visit display highlight will make it less demanding for users to monitor every one of the media records that have been shared on a specific talk.
