Skype 1.50.53 for Web

Skype 1.50.53 for the Web has already become available to some users and has brought the following improvements:
  • Enabling screen share preview (only applies to default monitor, so preview will also show that there’s no selection of which monitor to share, just preview of what will be shared).
  • Deleted unnecessary link "Do you already have a Skype account?", which show up even if the user was logged in on the site.
  • Built-in plugin through which substantially reduces setup time for the connection of calls on the Outlook service.
  • Notifications shown only when it’s likely to be visible for user. E.g. When browser tab is closed and window is not focused, notifications are not shown. They are shown when the window will re-gain the focus so the user will not missed them
This is the list of the main changes in the new version of Skype for Web. Of course, the version of Skype for the browser continue to be improved, but do not forget that you can download Skype for other operating systems.
