Microsoft recently redesigned Skype for Windows Desktop to make it easier to chat and share. This new design takes inspiration from Skype on mobile, as you’ll see thumbnail pictures of your contacts, a new bubble-style chat design, and consistent icons for chat, video calls and audio calls. There’s more spacing between contacts and chats, as well as message previews for unread chats, making it even easier to follow conversations.
Other new changes,
- When you share file types like Office documents and PDFs, you’ll see file icons displayed to make it easier to visually scan for and find different files in your chat history.
- With the new side-by-side design, you can effortlessly multi-task on a voice or video call.
- The free group video calls we previously announced work better than ever on the redesigned for Windows.
The final release of the improved Skype is here to download.
