Skype Insider Preview // Release Notes for Skype 8.62.76.27

The latest Insider build 8.62 is out. This time we were mostly focusing on Skype for Mobile so we have some new features on Android and iOS. Plus some bug fixes, performance and stability improvements as usual. 

What's New? 

  • Skype with Android auto? Yes! Let’s have your messages read out loud and answer them via voice commands while driving.
  • Boring background, Part 2: this time you can change your camera background even on your iPhone and iPad. Available on iPhone 7, iPad 2018, iPod Touch 2019 and iOS 12 or later
  • Skype for Windows 10 version 15 improvements: adding an in-line reply to notifications and support for automatic MSA login.

What’s fixed?

  • We've fixed even more notifications bugs in Skype for Android and joining meetings using Meet Now should be also much smoother now.

The new features are rolling out gradually over the next couple of days so if you don’t see them right away, just check again soon!   

Please let us know what you think about the latest changes, either here in the community or through the Skype app. And you can always go to Skype’s User Voice to submit and vote for new features and ideas.  

Thank you for all that you do to support Skype!

The Skype Team

Hi MarcinWiśniewski,

thanks for the feedback. We would like to extend the current 3x3 grid view, but I'm affraid we don't have any plans for such a big grid view you are requesting. Not saying it won't happen in the future if we will have more simillar requests :)

Android Auto support has come with the latest Skype Insider Preview, but sadly only for sending and receiving SMS messages.

I there !

I would like to go back the stable version of Skype (not the insider preview) but I don't see the option...
Even uninstall/reinstall did not work.
Any suggestion ?
