Microsoft is considering to Bring Back the ‘Compact View’ to Modern Skype


Microsoft owned Skype would launch the new version with the split window view. The company is currently taking feedback for three versions from the users to ensure liking of the version before the launch. The company has already announced that Skype 7 will be discontinuation on September 1.

The move made it clear that Microsoft is ready to take feedback for making the product better leading to the better experience which is an improvement from its last failed attempt to bring massive changes in mobile apps to take edged over the peers like Snapchat and others in the race.

In the process of evolution, Skype dropped compact view and has now working to bring that version in the modern-day Skype. To take things in the right direction, the company has surveyed for three options Split, Hub and Tabbed.

Among the three in ‘Split’ mode, one can view all recent conversations and contacts which are displayed in a narrow window and could open a new independent window from the list or an incoming notification while all open conversations are displayed individually in the desktop taskbar.

In the Hub type of arrangement, you can split off any conversation you choose into a new, individual window and can open a conversation from the hub or a notification, the conversation window is brought to the foreground so you can respond.

For Tabbed type of split view, all recent conversations and contacts are displayed in a narrow window. If you open multiple conversations they are tabbed together into a single window, but you can drag to open a new window for individual conversations if you like. All open conversations are displayed individually on the desktop taskbar. Comment below and let us know which version you would like to prefer and stay tuned with TechnoCodex for more updates.
