Skype for Windows 10 updated with improvements to screen sharing

The Skype app in Windows 10 picked up a new update on the Windows Store today. The latest update is available to Windows Insiders for now, but it’ll likely get rolled out to the public later. In terms of features, there isn’t a lot of new things in the update but it brings some pretty neat changes.

For one, you can now share your PC’s audio when you share your screen on a call. Previously, Skype only let you share the screen itself, meaning that it was impossible to share the audio from your PC which could be pretty annoying in some scenarios.

Another neat change coming to the Skype app is that you can now view a photo right from the app itself, rather than having to open up Microsoft Photos. In the past, Skype used to open up the Microsoft Photos app to display a photo from a conversation but thankfully that’s no longer the case. If you would still like to view pictures in the Photos app, there’s a button in the Skype app that will let you open up a picture on the Microsoft Photos app instead so that you can edit or draw over it.

And lastly, the Skype app now includes a handy little button for feedback which you can click to submit feedback about the app via the Feedback Hub in Windows 10.

If you are a Windows Insider in the Fast Ring, you can get the latest update for Skype from the Windows Store below.
