Skype for Windows finally supports high-resolution displays

The latest Skype update for Windows finally adds support for super-sharp displays, making the application clearer on monitors that boast resolutions above 1080p.

Until now, Skype looked pretty poor on high-resolution monitors — kind of like old iPhone apps that haven’t been updated to accommodate the Retina display. The app was usable, but text looked somewhat blurry, making images ugly and smaller fonts harder to read.

But as noticed by Windows Central, Microsoft has fixed that in Skype version 7.13.80.101. Even on 4K monitors, the app looks incredibly crisp, as demonstrated in the graphic below.

If you have a high-resolution monitor, laptop, or tablet, then you should get your hands on this update as soon as you can; you will certainly be glad you did. You can update from within the Skype app itself by clicking “Help,” then “Check for Updates.”
