A new Skype Preview app update 126.96.36.199 for Windows 10 is now available for Insiders. The latest update is now rolling out on both PC and Mobile devices. The update brings new features like Skype Translator, a voice translation for calls to mobiles and landlines on Skype Preview. You can now use Skype to call people on their phones and communicate across languages, even if they do not have Skype.
To use this feature select the dial pad, enter a phone number to see a Skype Translator option next to the call button. Tap it to bring up settings for Skype Translator. From here set the languages and place the call. Once the person on the other side picks up they will hear a short message stating that the call is being recorded and translated through Skype Translator and then you can start talking.
