Microsoft today released a new update for its Skype app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. The update has bumped the app to new version 11.18.614. The app is updated with a new Welcome Page and more for Insiders in the Fast Ring.

After the latest update, the Skype users will be able to see a new Welcome Message by informing users to connect or synchronise with the address book to connect to the family and friends using the Skype app.

    “Latest Skype update is only available for users on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Fast Ring” – this part is false. Windows Mobile fast ring is not on Fall Creators Update and still updated skype to this release

    • Dude,

      If you can read properly i have mentioned Windows 10 devices which means PC and Tablets. IF its for mobile the sentence would have read as “Users on Windows 10 Mobile” be sure to read and understand before commenting.

    Since the update Skype has been sluggishly performing on my Lumia 950. I have never had issues before until this recent update. Video quality has also been affected.
