The new Skype for Desktop has a very streamlined user interface. It follows the modern trend of flat minimalist design with glyph icons and no borders anywhere. This design is being used in all other Microsoft products.

The app comes with a redesigned theme picker that combines the theme picker and color. Within the Settings menu you'll find the added Appearance drop down to easily manage your experience in Skype.

The new color gradients feature higher contrast, improved visibility and now give you the ability to control whether the color accents affect your message bubble or the bubbles of the people you're messaging with.
