Windows Insiders can now try out the new Skype UWP on Windows 10 PCs


Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Build 14316 to Insiders in the Fast Ring. The latest update for the OS introduces a new Skype experience, which Insiders can try out right now. The new Skype app for the Universal Windows Platform is only available for PCs at the moment, but it’s expected to be available for Mobile devices at a later date. As for the features, there aren’t a tonne of things to be excited about apart from the improved user interface and the basic features such as the ability to send mojis, chat, video call, etc.

Microsoft stated:

Try out the Skype UWP Preview app: You can try out the Skype UWP Preview app announced a couple of weeks ago on the Skype blog. The Skype UWP Preview app includes a lot of the basic Skype functionality – with more features and functionality to come in the next couple of releases. We are first releasing this for PCs only, but we will be making the Skype UWP app available on for Mobile in a future build.
