Microsoft remains committed to a better Skype experience and
today the software maker announced that it’s retiring the
highlights feature. Microsoft says that they are removing the
highlights feature in order to improve the user experience.
If you’re unfamiliar with highlights, it’s a feature that
lets customers snap photos and videos. The highlights (photos
and video) feature is similar to Snapchat’s Stories and it’s
temporarily visible to users connections.
Microsoft says that you can download and view the highlights
until September 30 via Settings.
“We now have very focused navigation with Chats, Calls, and
Contacts, making it even easier for you to engage on Skype.
Your previously posted Highlights will be available for you to
view or download until Sept. 30th, 2018 via Settings,”
Microsoft writes in a blog post.
“You’ll also see we’ve redesigned how to add a reaction to a
message, a new layout for reaction summary, as well as a new
message forwarding experience,” the company explains.
It’s worth noting that the latest version of Skype is available
for Insiders only and it’ll be rolled out to the general public
