Microsoft today announced that Skype users can now video call their Skype contacts on Lync, and vice versa. This new feature will allow millions of Skype and Lync customers can reach even more colleagues, partners and customers, streamlining communications across both work and life. This new feature is currently only available on latest Windows. Today, Microsoft released Skype 7.0 update on Windows with several improvements.
- Users can now scroll, call, and browse using touch! Whether flipping through your chat history or tapping to start a call, it’s easier than ever to use Skype with a touch PC.
- We’ve listened to your feedback on the redesign we unveiled in October, and as a result, we’re now enabling a compact view for those wanting to pack in more contacts and chats on a screen (You can find this update under both “View” as well as Tools>Options>IM Settings). On top of that, we’ve added a toggle to show unread messages and a more balanced color scheme.
