Microsoft is clearly trying to get people to use Teams. However, that doesn’t mean the company has completely forgotten about Skype. The company just put out a redesign for Skype that adds a fresh new look and some interesting features.
Microsoft describes the latest of many Skype redesigns as an “improved, faster, reliable, and super modern-looking Skype.” This will be a gradual upgrade, as Microsoft says it’ll roll out over the next few months.
The most intense redesign is coming to the section you see during a call, which Microsoft calls the call stage. The section you see during calls will soon include all attendees, whether they have video enabled or not. This makes it easier to see exactly who is on the call with you. Of course, you can shut this off and only see people with video if you want.
