The latest Skype version 8.52 is out. There are more cool new features in this release, plus we’ve made split view even better for our desktop apps. We’ve made it easier for you to share your contacts with the new drag and drop function and you can now schedule Skype calls in a group. In addition, we’ve done some bug fixes and performance and stability improvements. You asked, we delivered!

Skype for Windows, Mac, Linux and Web

Just  dropping in: Want to share a contact with another contact, or just add someone to a conversation? In Skype for desktop, just drag and drop your contact right from the contact list into a conversation. You will have the option to either add or share your contact to that chat. Learn more.

Schedule a call for groups: Already used to scheduling calls from any 1:1 chat? Well now you can use this feature for a group as well! You can select all the participants of the group to pre-arrange a time for a call. Learn more.

Skype for Android, iPhone and iPad

Schedule a call for groups: Already used to scheduling calls from any 1:1 chat? Well now you can use this feature for a group as well! You can select all the participants of the group to pre-arrange a time for a call. Learn more.

Welcome to the dark side. Let the dark theme flow through your Skype on iOS & Android. With the latest OS version on your mobile device, if you select the dark theme, it will automatically set Skype to the dark theme as well. Learn more.

What’s fixed?
  • conversation window sizes and positions remembered in Split View
  • ability to move and resize your video preview during a video call in Split View
  • focus in composer after opening the conversation in Split View
  • indication of new messages in the individual conversation windows in Split View
  • minimized windows are restored when a conversation is activated from recent chats or the call monitor window in Split View
  • grouped notifications on Android
The 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. And you can always go to Skype’s User Voice to submit and vote for new features and ideas. You might also want to check out the known issues.
