Skype for Windows 10 comes out of preview, picks up Skype SMS support and more for all users

After a year of testing, Microsoft’s Skype app for Windows 10 came out of preview back in March for Windows Insiders. Today, Microsoft is rolling out the same update to all Windows 10 users, which means the Skype app is now finally out of preview for the public. The update brings some other new features, including Group Video calling, and more:

  • We’ve simplified the way your contacts on Skype connect with the People app on your device. Skype will display the number of mutual contacts you share, making it easier to find the right people. You can always opt out of this setting by updating your profile for People Search and Suggestions.
  • Messaging – searchable chats, keyboard shortcuts at your fingertips and send SMS with a little Skype Credit.
  • Group video calling – the new redesigned view brings everyone even closer together.
  • Calling – switch microphone, camera or to a new device during a call.
