Windows 7: New Skype Insider Preview version now available

23 Jan 2019   #1

64-bit Windows 10 Pro
New Skype Insider Preview version now available

Hello, Skype Insiders! The new builds are out, let us know what you think!
  • Store app version for iPhone, iPad, Android 6+, and Android tablets
  • Desktop app version for Windows, Mac, and Linux
  • Web version
What's new?
  • Skype for Web Preview: Adding a badge icon to the Skype for Web Preview tab on web to indicate unreaded conversations.
  • Mobile platforms: We have now overhauled our call controls so you can perform the important actions in calls more easily.
  • Desktop platforms: Based on your feedback we're moving the in-call chat panel to the right.
  • Ringless calling in 1 person groups was enabled.
  • You can send GIF directly from the expression picker now!
What was fixed:
  • We're aware that some of you were experiencing the bug in your clients: messages were sent back to you in separated chat ("chat with yourself"). This shouldn't be happening after yesterday's fix and second fix is coming very soon so those chats will go away. Thank you for your logs and feedback!
Known Issues:
  • Store app for Windows 10 PC: Issues with recording and sending video messages, we're on it!
Check out the current version and please provide us the feedback here in the forums or in the app by (gently) shaking your device or going to Skype → Help and feedback. We can't wait for your insight!

Heads up, we roll out small updates to preview builds as we get them ready for the general public. We'll keep this post updated as new features and bug fixes are rolled out. You can always see the current version numbers in the Skype Flight Hub.

Please note also builds are released slowly over time so you might not see new builds right away on all of your devices. If we ever stop a rollout because of the feedback you've provided, we'll let you know.

Thank you for all you do to support Skype,
The Skype Squads
