Skype for Windows 10 updates with Fluent Design and other new features

The Skype for Windows 10 desktop has new features and a graphical update with a touch of Fluent Design. This latest development had already appeared in the last few weeks for the Insiders registered in the Fast Ring; now it is time for a wider distribution to all users.

Among the novelties we can see how the background of the sidebar now takes advantage of the translucent acrylic effect, while Reveal highlights the elements that can be more elegantly punctured when passing over the mouse. There are certainly two new features that make browsing on Skype more stylish.
