Microsoft today released the first major update for Windows 10, dubbed as the November Update. The November Update introduces a bunch of improvements throughout the operating system. Alongside the new features and improvements, Microsoft has also introduced a Skype integration with the November Update. The new Skype experience includes two new apps: Skype Video and Messaging which are currently in Preview.
Today, the Consumer Preview of Skype Integration begins rolling out as part of the November operating system update for Windows 10 PCs. In this preview we’ve built selected Skype video calling and messaging features, like 1:1 messaging, calling and emoticons, into native Windows 10 apps to make communicating from your desktop quick and easy.
Once you’re on the latest version of Windows 10, give Skype video and Messaging apps a go. You’ll find them in your start menu and you can pin them to your taskbar for even faster access. Then let us know what you think and what you want to see next using the Windows Feedback app.
As the apps are still in preview, they have quite a few bugs. Furthermore, the apps are lacking some much needed features: such the ability to send images. Hopefully Microsoft will add new features with app updates in the near future to make the apps better — until then, tell us what you think of the new Skype experience on Windows 10 November Update in the comment section below.
