  • Staff
Hi Everyone,

The latest Skype Insider build 8.103 was fully released and this is what we were working on.

What’s new?

Drag & Drop Enhancements in Skype! 🖱️


Have you ever wished you could just drag and drop texts or links directly into Skype's message panel?

Well, now you can, because Skype has leveled up!

Now, effortlessly drag and drop texts or links directly into the message panel for quick edits and sending on Skype for Web on the Edge browser. Alternatively, drop them onto a conversation list, and they're saved as a handy draft. Modeled after our Android's direct share function, these items will neatly append at the end of your current draft, optimizing your chat experience. Enjoy!

Performance Improvements for GIF Picker in Skype! 🚀

We've heard you, and we're on it!

We've focused on enhancing the performance and loading speeds of the GIF picker on Skype for iOS & Android. Our Engineering team has dived deep, employing cutting-edge optimization techniques to ensure a smoother experience for you and even better performance insights in the future.

Users previously experienced some hiccups, especially when searching, but with these updates, those days are in the rearview. Dive in and experience the speed!

Stability improvements & Bug fixes:
  • Skype was using excessive CPU while in an idle state, on Mac
  • Endless loading when adding a new card for Skype Number purchases on Web
  • the "back arrow" delay during call setup to avoid accidental profile menu access on Android
As usual, all new features are rolling out gradually over the next couple of days so if you don’t see them right away, just check again soon. 

Please let us know what you think about the latest changes, either here in the community or through the Skype app. You can always go to the Skype’s User Feedback channel to submit and vote for new features and ideas. 

Additionally, download the latest Skype Insider build here if you have not yet, so, you don't miss out on these Early Access features. :)

Thank you,
The Skype Team
