Microsoft has started rolling out the latest Insider build 188.8.131.52 for Skype app and carries a lot of cool new features and improvements.
- MeetNow integration in Windows 10 System Tray. We have been closely working with the Windows Team to give you an option to quickly create a meeting directly from Windows. Based on your Windows version (not exactly related to this Skype Insider build) you should see the MeetNow icon in your system tray.
- Large Grid mode for video calling so you can see up to 49 participants at once on a single screen.
- Improvements for Android 11 such as chat bubbles, priority conversation and conversation space.
- We have improved the option how to add someone to an ongoing Skype call by selecting their phone number as well as via Skype.
- We have also boosted up the performance by updating to the latest version of the React Native.
