Microsoft is releasing a new version of the Skype Insider Preview app. Skype version 22.214.171.124 is available for all supported platforms.
The new Skype Preview app 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.
New Speaker View for Group Calls in Skype
Version 126.96.36.199 features a new speaker view for group calls. The official announcement describes the feature as follows.
In large group meetings it's often useful to see the person who is currently speaking, big on your screen. In our latest Insider build, we are introducing speaker view for group calls! When you turn on speaker view, the call screen will display the person currently speaking and when someone else starts talking the call screen will automatically switch to follow the action!
On mobile devices you can easily switch between the default grid view and the new speaker view by tapping the view switcher button on the upper right corner.
On desktop, you can access the new speaker view from the menu in the upper right part of the call screen.
