In June, Microsoft announced the launch of the next generation of Skype & rdquo; re-design interface, the introduction of a series of new features, including color customization, Snapchat style "highlights" new add-ons and more automatic features. The new version is available on Android, iOS, but Microsoft says Mac and Windows users will have to wait for a while.
Today, Microsoft announced the release of a new Skype preview for Mac and non-Windows 10 PC users. However, it turns out that the Windows 10 PC supports this version, as long as they are Windows 10 build 10586 (Build 1511 / November Update) or earlier, and the newer version of the Windows 10 operating system is expected to rely entirely on the Skype Universal Windows platform application.
Microsoft said that the new Skype preview version provides most of the next-generation mobile experience, but specifically designed the desktop to take full advantage of the larger screen. The new Skype preview allows the chat window to be in front and center, making it the most expressive Skype. Group chat is more active, new features can improve the user and friends and family contact. Users can also collaborate more in real-time screens and photo sharing in group calls.
Users can now download the new Skype Preview application via the Skype Insider website. Microsoft said that the Skype preview will be installed with the classic version of Skype in order to easily switch when needed, but it is recommended to run only one Skype version at a time.
