Some major changes has been adopted on the Skype Universal Windows Platform, the look and feel reminiscent more of a social chat app. Released as a preview to the Windows Insiders for testing, the Skype team had simplified the app by removing duplicative and unnecessary menus, the global menus are now in a new single Settings menu, and contextual menus will soon appear in upcoming releases.
The app will first release on Windows 10 PCs and later on across Windows 10 Mobile devices as well.
Users can look forward to some new changes like signing in with a Microsoft account and have it link with the Skype ID, see who else is available and also be able to innitiate chat with anyone on the contact list.
Just like some of the popoular chat apps, Skype UWP will let you see what the other person is typing, make on to one voice and video calls, send emoticons and Mojis.
