Hello, Skype Insiders! We are rolling out a new preview build. Check out version 8.15.76.418 and let us know what you think!

What's new?

  • We're now supporting the call and chat related URIs to initiate audio and video calls!

What's fixed?

  • You can send your Mojis normally, it's no longer directing you to other chats.
  • Your Skype contacts on different platforms are able to see your videos again.
  • The Skype user name is seen correctly when you're receiving the notifications on your device.
  • You shouldn't receive the call (and other) notifications while you're in DND status.
  • Accessibility: all reactions under the reaction pop-up window are accessible using the swipe gestures.

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.

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
