There are a few improvements made to the chat functionality.

  • You can delete a chat. Right-click the desired chat and select the appropriate command in the context menu.
  • You can mention people with the '@' symbol in group chats.


Skype for Windows 10 is available to Windows 10 users from the Store. If you have automatic updates enabled in the Windows Store, this update should already be installed on your device. If not, head to its page in the Store and hit the update button. If you don't have Skype installed, you can also grab it from there.
