Microsoft released a new Skype Insider Preview Build which brings new features and improvements besides taking the app to v188.8.131.52. The new update brings improvements to the People You May Know feature which now suggests people to you based on mutual contacts you’ve added or chatted with on Skype.
The company also addressed a privacy concern by providing you comprehensive controls and privacy settings so that you can manage People You May Know the way that you think is best for you.
The update is available for store app for Windows 10 PC, iPhone, iPad, Android 6.0+, Android Tablets, Desktop app for Windows, Mac, Linux.
Moreover, there are some minor changes which you can find below.
- Less clutter. We’ve reduced the nubmer of tabs you see in the Contacts Panel to just one tab if you choose to not sync your device and two tabs if you do choose to sync your device contacts with your Skype contacts.
- Device contacts don’t clutter your contact list on Skype. When you have your device contacts synced, your device contacts will be shown only under the “All” tab. And if you un-sync your device, those contacts will stop appearing in your contacts list.
- Remove as you please. When you chat or call someone on Skype for the first time, they will be added to your contact list. If you remove them from your contact list however, they will not be added back again automatically even if you have a conversation again.
