    The latest Insider build 8.70 is out and you can enjoy some pretty cool features!

    What's New?
    • Background noise in your meetings? No problem.We have noise cancellation now!
    • Less passwords. Adding WAM support to Windows 10 so you can switch between multiple accounts without a prompt to enter a password every time.
    • See who's on the call. We've added a participants button to Skype calls, so you can see who's in the call.
    • We also moved privacy-related settings into one top-level Privacy category in the app.
    • More performance improvements.

    Coming soon:
    • Supporting Skype on Safari
    • Supporting Skype on Chromium-based browsers
    • Supporting background blur for Skype for Web
    • The ability to lock the meeting
    • Searching for contacts by phone number

    As usually all new features are rolling out gradually over the next couple of days so if you donít see them right away, just check again soon. 

    Please let us know what you think about the latest changes, either here in the community or through the Skype app. And you can always go to Skypeís User Voice to submit and vote for new features and ideas.
