The lastest Insider build 126.96.36.199 is out and we have prepared a lot of new features and cool improvement for you.
- MeetNow integration in Windows 10 System Tray. We have been closely working with the Windows Team to give you an option to quickly create a meeting directly from Windows. Based on your Windows version (not exactly related to this Skype Insider build) you should see the MeetNow icon in your system tray.
- Large Grid mode for video calling so you can see up to 49 participants at once on a single screen.
- Improvements for Android 11 such as chat bubbles, priority conversation and conversation space.
- We have improved the option how to add someone to an ongoing Skype call by selecting their phone number as well as via Skype.
- We have also boosted up the performance by updating to the latest version of the React Native.
Coming soon on Insiders and Retail:
- Updating Skype for Amazon Kindle Fire
- Categories for predefined background images
- Together Mode
- Noise Cancellation
- Last message avatar icon
- Video freezes when typing a message during a call
- Videos in chat freeze on the first frame and do not play
- Skype prevents Macbook from auto sleep
