Microsoft has carried out a great redesign of Skype. In fact, the release is positioned as "next generation Skype". According to the developers, Skype was rebuilt from scratch Skype.
Among the changes, one can single out an analog of the "histories" that have grown fond of many from Instagram and Snapchat. In Skype, the function is called "Highlights". If Instagram and Snapchat "histories" are kept 24 hours, then "Highlights" remain available for seven days. Photos and videos from the "Highlights" can be supplemented with drawings, text and stickers, and recipients can respond to them with emoticons or usual comments.
In general, the application now received three main sections of the interface – "Highlights", "Chats" and "Shooting". Users will be able to customize the color scheme of Skype. There is also a new "Search" panel, it helps to find very different information with the help of the Bing search engine, from contacts to gifok, and add bots to conversations. The new Skype will be implemented step by step. First it will be released for mobile devices. From today it will start to spread for Android, the process will take several weeks, then it will appear for the iPhone. Versions for Windows and Mac will be released in the next few months.
