Skype Preview for Mac rolling out with mentions, improved group calls & more

Microsoft's new Skype Preview app for desktops only works on older versions of Windows, but there's a way to get it running on the latest version of Windows 10.

Today, Microsoft announced the release of its new Skype Preview app for "Mac and non-Windows 10 PC* users". "It's not yet complete and we need your feedback", says a Skype spokesperson. The upgrade makes Skype look significantly more white, with Instagram-like shading inclinations in specific spots.

Microsoft has rolled some new desktop features, including a new media gallery, updates for group calling and more. For instance, chats are up front and center, but you can still do group calls, with real-time screen and photo sharing.

Microsoft is starting to roll out a preview of a redesigned version of its Skype application for Windows and Mac desktop users.

There's a new notification panel that gives you all the updates of your friends and family, and the calls and messages you missed and received. Some of the features are already rolling out for users with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, however the full roster should arrive for everyone soon.

The new notification panel allows users to get a quick view of any notifications since they were last in Skype and can easily jump into any conversation by clicking the relevant one. Skype Preview also brings with it in-call emoji reactions.
