Skype 7.16 for Windows app – making it easier to share content

Instant messaging is more fun when you get to share. Today, we’re excited to launch Skype 7.16 for Windows app with several improvements to how you share.

Media toolbar

Sharing shouldn’t take too many clicks – as such we’ve released a new toolbar which you can use to quickly share photos, files, video messages, contacts and emoticons. In your instant message window, you’ll now see shortcuts to these five sharing options. As you type, the toolbar will minimize itself so you can see more of what you type. To expand it again, just click the paper clip menu.

Skype for Windows

URL previews

Today we’re beginning to roll out URL previews to all Skype for Windows users. Now, you will be able to see a preview of what was shared with you rather than a long, ugly link. With URL preview, you can see the video or image preview of what is about to be shared with you or what you just shared with someone.
