The latest Insider build 8.59 is out and we are bringing you some new features like an option to directly send files from File Explorer to Skype or the ability to control your calls from Recent Chat list. Plus some bug fixes, performance and stability improvements as usual.
Sharing is caring! We have added the ability to share files directly from File Explorer to Skype. The feature is part of the context menu of each file.
Improved call controls so you can end an ongoing call directly from your Recent Chat list. Moreover, you will see the call duration here.
Too many contacts? We have improved our deletion function so you can even delete multiple contacts right from the contact list. Just use the Shift or Ctrl/Cmd buttons.
Improved subscriptions searching for iOS - now on you can search for any available subscriptions
- Skype is starting in foreground when it set to start in the background
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!
