Microsoft yesterday announced the release of Skype 7.7 for Mac with web link previews, which makes sharing web pages in Skype an easier and richer experience.
With web link previews, you no longer need to type the: “check out this funny cat video” alongside the actual link to the cat video. When you send the link in chat, a rich visual preview of the web page is automatically displayed, making it much easier to see what’s been shared. Finding a link in your chat history also becomes quicker, saving precious time to let you focus on the conversation.
Microsoft has optimized for video and image content, so try links to video, image or even gifs first. Web link previews will be gradually rolled out on Mac, and then to other platforms in the coming months.
Other fixes and improvements in Skype 7.7 for Mac:
|Application||Fixed an issue where some users cannot start Skype due to a corrupted index|
|Account||Fixed an issue preventing some users from disabling “User XYZ went offline” notification|
