Earlier this evening, Windows 10 Build 10558 leaked out on the internet. The latest build of Windows 10 brings a bunch of new goodies, including the new Universal Skype Experience, and some improvements for Edge.

With build 10558, Microsoft has added three new apps which are part of the new Universal Skype Experience: Phone, Video, and Messaging. The Phone app basically lets you see a history of your Skype calls, while the Video app lets you call your Skype contacts and see a call history and the Messaging app basically lets you send and recieve messages via Skype. For now, all of these apps are quite rough, and they crash quite a lot. However, keep in mind that this is still under development and we expect the apps’ stability to improve in the coming weeks.


Alongside the addition of the new Skype apps, Microsoft has also added some improvements for Edge. With the latest build, you can now have a docked F12 tools which was a much-needed feature. The update also introduces tab previews for Edge, and other behind the scene improvements, too.

It’s worth noting that Microsoft has also added the ability to save Windows apps to a different drive with the latest build. The build also brings some new icons, including a new icon for the Registry Editor. Other than that, there doesn’t seem to be any other major addition.

It isn’t yet known if Microsoft will be releasing this build to Insiders sometime soon. However, don’t be surprised if the company releases it to Insiders after its Windows 10 devices event on October 6th. Nonetheless, tell us what you think of Build 10558 in the comment section below.
