Skype is undergoing a redesign, new features and upgrades

Skype is ready to receive a new update, which will provide users with an “improved, faster, reliable and state-of-the-art” Skype experience. Microsoft announced this in a blog post, where it confirmed that this update will modernize “the most important part” of Skype.

Users will now see a call stage, which will show everyone on the main view during a call. The company has adjusted the way video streams are rendered in a grid, so that no one is left alone on the top shelf again.

whether they have video enabled or not. This puts all the participants side by side, including your own video in the main interface. Now, with this update, even if attendees don’t share their video, the app will still show their video feeds on the call stage.

Previously, if someone shared their screen or turned on Together mode, the video previews in the top bar were too small to look attractive. Now we will see larger video streams in the top bar. The next update also adds audio-only participants, and they’ll get their own track record on the call.

The company says it will give you the option to turn off the video feed and hide audio-only attendees from the call stage. Apart from that, the video calling app will also get upgraded chat headers with a new layout. There will also be group avatars and new button gradients.

With Universal Translator, one can also communicate with anyone in any language, on a landline or a video call.

Microsoft also claims to have “enhanced the camera with the Office Lens feature, allowing you to capture memories, create videos or scan documents, whiteboards and business cards in the smartest way.”

Microsoft has also introduced a new Meet Now tool, which lets you create and join Skype calls without needing to sign in, create an account, or have the Skype app. With just one link, you will be able to join a call as a guest and connect online.

“When you don’t want to bother with annoying requirements like downloading an app, remembering a password, creating a new account, or keeping your call in under 45 minutes, all you have to do is make a call. quick on Meet Now. Said the company.
