Updates to Skype for modern Windows benefits mouse and keyboard users

Microsoft has released a new version of Skype for modern Windows.

Skype for modern Windows 2.8 aims to making the application easier to use for keyboard and mouse device users.

In a blog post on the Skype Garage and Updates blog page, Aga Guzik, head of Desktop Product Marketing at Skype, said: “There’s a tighter feel to the hub – the modern Skype is designed for touch but we know a lot of our users have mouse and keyboard devices. As a result we are tightening the space between your latest recent conversations, which brings forward the contacts list and makes navigation easier.”

The new version of Skype for Modern Windows supports the Windows 8.1 operating system, and changes have also been made in order to allow Skype to load more quickly onto Windows 8.1 devices.

Favourites syncing has also been made more reliable, enabling users to access their favourites list across different devices.  

Skype for modern Windows is available on the Windows Store.
