Skype on Thursday announced a new redesign for its desktop Windows and OS X applications that puts a new focus on messaging. The team said that it redesigned the applications so that the look and feel of both was also more consistent with what Skype offers for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
“Now, you’ll see thumbnail pictures of your contacts, a new bubble-style chat design, and consistent icons for chat, video calls and audio calls,” Skype’s Tom Huang explained in a blog post. Skype also added message previews for unread messages, improved how photos appear in chats and also swapped out the icons for specific files so they’re easier to find within chat history. Additionally, the team added a new feature that lets you chat in a side-window that sits right next to your video call. Finally, Skype said that it improved the group video chat functionality, which is now free, in the latest update.
You can find Skype 7.0 for Mac and the new Skype for Windows, which is apparently still a preview, in the source links below.
