Skype Insider Preview // In-call chat panel has moved to the right!

Available on the desktop app for Windows and macOS

Version: 8.40.76.32

We've heard your feedback regarding the positioning of the chat panel while in a Skype call. In our previous versions of Skype 8, the chat panel opened up on the left and prevented you from seeing your lists of conversations at the same time as the chat for the current call. Today, we're excited to announce that the chat panel for the current call will always open up on the right side! We've also made it resizable! 

In your next call, try out the new updated in-call chat panel and let us know how you like it!

Thank you for all that you do to support Skype!

The Skype Team

Does this mean that we'll be able to resize the contacts sidebar when not in a call?

Yes. This webcam image can now be resized and moved to any location on the call screen. However, the drag and drop to create a split view is no longer available.

How about a "what's new" inside the app, as a text message -  updates are ( very fortunately) coming so rapidly now?

We should be able to customize where the chat can go. We should be able to move it to the lefr or right. I don’t like this change.
