Earlier this year, Microsoft revealed that the company is working on a new, universal Skype experience for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft announced that the company will be delivering the new Universal Skype experiences for Windows 10 “later this summer” as a preview. So, summer has just ended – where’s the new Universal Skype experiences? Well, it seems like the folks over at Redmond are still working on the new experiences.
We’ve reached out to Microsft asking for an update on the Universal Skype experience, and a Microsoft spokesperson told us:
“We want to make sure Skype built into Windows 10 is the best experience possible, so we’re taking some more time to make sure it’s ready for users. In the meantime, you can continue to use Skype for Windows desktop, Skype for Windows Phone and Skype for Web on Edge.”
For now, there isn’t any specific release date for the Universal Skype Experience for Windows 10. It’s worth noting that the Universal Skype experiences for Windows 10 Mobile was leaked — and we suspect Microsoft will be delivering the new Universal Skype experiences with Threshold 2 in November.
