Microsoft hit hard at the beginning of last week by presenting the latest innovations in Windows 10, and the American giant returned to the table a few days later by mentioning the new version of Skype . We therefore know a little more about what awaits us and it was obviously impossible not to talk about it, especially since this version is very promising. So if you want to see more, you know what you have to do.
The first thing to know is that this new version will be integrated directly into Windows 10. You will therefore not need to download the application to take advantage of its features.
This goes for our computers, of course, but also for our hybrid machines and our mobile phones. Universality has its advantages, to be sure, but the competition may not hear it that way.
Windows 10 will ship with Skype
New version requires, Microsoft took the opportunity to work on the interface of its solution. Skype will be accessible from the Contacts app, with horizontal navigation based on the use of multiple columns. The list of modules will be placed on the left, closely followed by the list of contacts, the profile of the person selected and all associated activities.
On this side, we will even have the right to the list of trophies unlocked by our friends on Xbox Live.
For the rest, well we will find the same functions as usual. The Windows 10 version of Skype will allow us to cut the fat with our friends by sending them text messages, or by making them outright phone calls. Video-conferencing will also be part of the game and we can easily share any document or file of our choice.
Otherwise, I take this article to remind you that the new Windows 10 Technical Preview has been available since last weekend. You can download it now, by following the instructions in this article .
