Microsoft updates Skype for Windows 10, adds some features while trims others!

Microsoft today updated Skype UWP for Windows 10 on release preview ring bumping the version number from 11.19.856.9 to 12.4.676.0 . Talking about the app, it is still not at par with its iOS and Android counterparts but is slowly getting there .

Here is a changelog from Aggiornamenti Lumia :

  • There are many more reactions available now: You will find, for example, the new icon cube, outside, middle finger and lots of others (even happier than the ones listed above).
  •  It is now possible to cancel Skype conversations (first it was possible just clear normal messages and hide Skype’s.)
  • New welcome screen
  • You can no longer hide conversations
  • You can no longer add groups to favorites
  • Bug fixes and general improvements


It is quite clear that this update will be rolling out to general consumers very soon and you can always stay tuned to MSLeaks for future updates related to Skype and everything Tech!
