Skype brings drag-and-drop support, webpage previews, and more to all users on Windows 10


Microsoft recently a pretty major update for the Skype Preview app to users on the Windows Insider program. Today, the company seems to have rolled the update out to all Windows 10 users, bringing useful features such as drag-and-drop. With drag-and-drop, users can simply drag and drop a file to share it in a conversation which is quite handy. In addition to this, the update also brings webpage previews and enhanced profiles. Here is the full changelog for the update:

  • Improved messaging – drag and drop files (up to 300MB) and images up to 300MB in chat to quickly share them, right click on the message and select “Quote Message” so you will know who said what in instant message chats, see an image preview of a shared URL rather than a long link, and stay on top of unread messages with an unread message indicator in chat.
  • Enhanced profiles – start a call or conversation from a contact’s profile page, add/remove/block contacts, view initials of a contact if they don’t have a profile picture, and unblock blocked contacts.
  • Easier calling – manage audio/video devices from Skype settings to select a preferred camera, microphone or speaker and test audio before a call.
  • Additional Windows Mobile updates – video calls will default to loud speaker for video calls and improved back button navigation.
