Microsoft's Skype has made some changes to Android and iOS applications with the new update as it focuses on phone calls, video chats, and news. For this reason, the company has decided to remove the Highlights feature, especially to clean up the interface, make it visually and functionally more appealing. Highlights are not the only features that are removed, Skype also removes "Capture".
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Highlights, it's basically been Skype using the Instagram and Snapchat stories, but it does not seem like many users wanted to use this feature. Not surprisingly, since Skype attracts different types of customers for Instagram and Snapchat, Skype can not be functionally compared to Instagram and Snapchat because they provide users with different features / tools and are used for different things. However, if you were a Skype user, you can download all your highlights by September 30th from Skype. So remember, if you want to save something. This new version of Skype with updated user interface is available in version 8.29 for both Android and iOS. This version is currently deployed on both platforms. However, it may not be immediately available to your device because it's a staggered introduction
In their blog post, Skype says it has worked closely with Skype customers to improve the app's design to make it better Get idea of what consumers really want from the app. The company has also created a UserVoice site that allows you to vote on feature changes that you want to prioritize. You can do this through this link. That's pretty much all, a link to Skype in the Play Store is included below, in case you want to check if the update is available.
