    Stability improvements & Bug fixes:

    • Audio Message Accessibility: Improved the drag functionality of the progress bar for short audio messages, ensuring easier navigation on Desktop.

    • Background Reliability on Android: Addressed a sign-out bug that occurred when the app was running in the background.

    As usual, all new features are rolling out gradually over the next couple of days so if you don’t 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. You can always go to the Skype’s User Feedback channel to submit and vote for new features and ideas. 

    Additionally, download the latest Skype Insider buildhere if you have not yet, so, you don't miss out on these Early Access features. :)

    Thank you,
    The Skype Team
