Skype for Web refresh launches for ‘all’ desktops

The refreshed Skype for Web offers call recording HD video calling and notifications panel

The new features include HD video calling for both one to one calls and group calls, plus call recording and more, you can see all of the new features below. Skype has a native Linux app that can be installed, and Chromebook users are redirected to the Google Play Store to use the Android Skype app instead.

The new features which were rolled out on Thursday are aimed at those who prefer to use the web platform without a need for the service's standalone app to get access to these features.

All of these updates will reflect only on the Web version of Skype for desktop users running on Windows 10 or Mac OSX10.12 or higher. The major change of this update is the addition of HD-video calling features which will help many Skype users to make video calling at a better quality than ever.

Finally, there's also a new feature that lets users search within individual conversations.

Apart from this, Microsoft has tweaked the notification panel which let you to easily go through the messages where you have been mentioned or someone quoted you just by a single click.

Again, refresh the Skype for Web page and the service should now work correctly. This feature, which is already available in the desktop applications, makes it possible to find the content needed without resorting to scrolling back through old chat logs. The Chat Media Gallery makes it easy to find files, links, and photos shared in a conversation, whether it was yesterday or last month.

The refreshed Skype version also comes with a WhatsApp-like "Find within conversations" option to allow users to find specific messages in conversation by typing the word or phrase they want to find in the search box.

Like most of the companies out there, Microsoft too has a soft corner for the web.
