UWP Skype app for Windows 10 updated with new features (Fast Ring)

Skype app has received a new update for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile. The latest update version is 11.9.239.0. This update is applicable for only Fast Ring Insider. The latest update brings many new features such as Improved messaging, Easier calling & more. We can check out the full changelog below.

Skype Changelog:

Improved messaging – drag and drop files (up to 300MB) and images up to 300MB in chat to quickly share them, right click on the message and select “Quote Message” so you will know who said what in instant message chats, see an image preview of a shared URL rather than a long link, and stay on top of unread messages with an unread message indicator in chat.

Enhanced profiles – start a call or conversation from a contact’s profile page, add/remove/block contacts, view initials of a contact if they don’t have a profile picture, and unblock blocked contacts.

Easier calling – manage audio/video devices from Skype settings to select a preferred camera, microphone or speaker and test audio before a call.

Additional Windows Mobile updates – video calls will default to loud speaker for video calls and improved back button navigation.

You can download the updated app from the given link below.

  • Well that’s it, additions like this have just made my mind up. The app updates keep coming and areas that needed work in Windows 10 mobile are being addressed and improved, I’ve now ordered a Lumia 950XL for Christmas for myself. I cant pass it up for the price in Australia and best of all I can buy it on a 24 months interest free plan. Really cant wait to start using it for so many reasons, especially the Continuum improvements that we should start seeing next year.
