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 soon.
