Skype split view

The Redmond-based Microsoft has recently announced that it has changed its plan concerning the discontinuation of classic Skype in September. The support for classic Skype will continue for some time and it will be discontinued when the modern version of Skype is feature-rich.

“We are working to bring all the features you’ve asked for into Skype 8,” the Microsoft Agent said. Decision to retire the old Skype app and replace it with new modern version was met with some pretty harsh criticism.

Microsoft remains committed to Skype and the company is working on a new update for the messaging client that will add back the split view feature. Thanks to the feedback, Microsoft appears to have picked up a design for the split view and the company is internally testing it.

“Hey split view fans: Look what’s running on my desktop! Dogfooding and QA time (thanks for survey feedback!). And no, I’m not commenting on the schedule yet,” Microsoft’s Peter Skillman said in a tweet.
