New Interface For Skype On Windows 10 As Extensions Come To Microsoft Edge In Update


Windows 10 is a year old and to celebrate this milestone, Microsoft rolled out some new features which you can see upon updating the software. These updates actually started rolling out yesterday and all you have to do is go to settings and check for updates to start using the improved Windows 10 version. So here are added features to expect when you do carry out the update eventually;

There’s a new Skype interface: Skype has been redesigned for redesigned for Windows 10 users. Don’t worry about your favourite features because they’ll all still be there. “You’ll be able to use all your favorite Skype features: talk over 1:1 and group video calls, say hello with 1:1 and group chats, call mobiles and landlines at low rates, share photos, share files, use emoticons, and add Mojis. Keep in touch with anyone no matter what device they’re using—Skype is available on Windows, Apple, and Android devices.” In the new app, you’ll now be able to reply directly from notifications.

The new interface adopts the Windows 10 look but if you prefer the former look which is lighter, all you have to do is go to settings and choose “Light theme” under personalisation. Again this is for Skype for Windows 10 users but if you use the Skype desktop app, then you wouldn’t see these changes.

The improved Microsoft Edge that conserves your device battery comes with the update as well. Microsoft had released a research in which it showed how Edge performed vis a vis other browsers available with respect to battery life. That’s not all with respect to Edge, extensions are coming to the web browser as well. This is to help you personalise your browser like you do in Chrome and its likes.
