Recently, Microsoft revamped Skype’s look on Android and iOS and made it a bit Snapchattish in terms of design and user interface. Now, Microsoft is updating Skype for Windows 10 for Similar features. The improved design doesn’t bring a lot of new changes to the UI itself but it’s likely preparing for the new look of Skype.
Microsoft is discarding the hamburger menu in the app with the new update. The company has moved the profile picture, profile details, settings, and everything else that used to live in the hamburger to the header of the sidebar. When clicked on your profile picture, edit your profile details (your mood, bio, etc.) from the modal. From there, you can also access the Settings of the app which now loads in a modal and no longer looks bad on big displays. Well, these things doesn’t look bad on big displays anymore and various other things like the new chat window and number pad have also been moved to the new modal UI which actually works really well now.
Skype also gets a major update regarding sharing. Skype now integrates into the sharing system in Windows 10, meaning you can share anything from any app.
This update is available for Fast Ring Insiders for now. Update your app from the Windows Store.
