Skype 8.93 Changelog
Microsoft releases new Skype versions on a monthly basis to add new features, improvements, and fixes. These new features go through beta testing with Skype Insiders before becoming generally available. Microsoft will release another Skype update next month to introduce new features and fixes. In the meantime, you can become a Skype Insider if you want to test new features before most users. You can become a Skype Insider from here.
Skype Build 8.90 is available across all platforms. However, Microsoft says the update will be rolled out to users gradually in the next couple of days, and, therefore, there is no need to worry if you haven’t got it yet.
