Skype launches new desktop preview

Skype кардинально изменил дизайн

As a result, ratings plummeted in both Apple Inc.'s App Store and Google Inc.'s Play Store. The redesign makes Skype look a lot more white, with Instagram-like color gradients in certain places.

The new Skype Preview is created to take advantage of the larger screen space on a desktop PC, and Microsoft has tweaked group chats to make it easier to share photos or screen sharing during calls. This feature can be very useful instead of having to scroll through the entirety of a chat to find something. And the new chat gallery makes finding shared media even easier. However, that asterisk refers to a footnote in the announcement - it turns out that the new preview app is supported on Windows 10 PCs, as long as they're running Windows 10 build 10586 (Version 1511 / November Update) or earlier, as users with newer versions of the OS are expected to rely exclusively on the newer Universal Windows Platform app.

If you are eager to test out the new Skype, go to Skype Insider click "Download for Desktop". In the classic version, they are expected after the initial "testing on cats". Lately, dark themes have become popular choices with services like YouTube and Twitter rolling out the option.

You can use the chat filter to sort your chats by Time, Unread and Active (based on which of your contacts are now active on Skype).

Starting today, the next generation of Skype is available in preview on desktop computers.
