A new Skype preview app is now available for desktop computers. The latest update brings recently released Skype mobile experience on the desktops with new UI changes and features.
Skype Preview puts chat front and center—making this the most expressive Skype ever. Group chats are livelier with new features that improve your connection with friends and family. You can also do more together in group calls, with real-time screen and photo sharing.
New Skype preview app for Windows 10 features:
- @mentions, message reactions, and a new notification panel—Stay on top of your day with help from the notification panel. Quickly jump back into conversations where you were @mentioned to see how people reacted to what you’ve said.
- New chat media gallery—Finding shared content—such as links, documents, or media—in a chat has never been easier with the chat gallery.
- Enhanced group calls—Customize your group call experience with drag and drop ease. Say it with an emoji using our new in-call reactions, too!
The new Skype Preview app currently only available for Mac and on desktop PCs. Microsoft points out that it has already started testing out some of the new features in the UWP version of Skype on the Windows Store, but the design revamp hasn’t arrived there yet.
