We are excited to announce that you are now able to preview the photos and files you want to share before sending!

Why don't you concentrate development efforts on really requested features like multiple windows support and waste them on things like this one? Just to show that some development team is in place?

Also here, no-one in business cares much about this, but indeed, all important features from the Classic version are still missing.

Windows 10 apps can't handle multi windows. uhauahua

Is there a way to disable this feature? It's only adding yet one more step to do things. I used to be able to just drag and drop pictures into the window and now I have to confirm the sending? The first time it was there I thought I had sent the picture to my contact and it wasn't sent and was waiting there because I didn't know I had to do something else. Not very intuitive.

I agree with others, multiple windows, compact view and other features would be more useful than this...
