    Added new features and minor improvements to improve usability of the Skype for Windows client :

     

    • Sign in with a Microsoft or Facebook account.
    • You can now sign into Skype directly using a Microsoft or Facebook account, without having to first create a Skype account, making it easier to connect with friends on Skype without needing to setup a new Skype account.

    • Link Microsoft and Facebook accounts to a Skype account.
    • If you sign in with a Microsoft or Facebook account you will be offered the option to link your Skype account. If you choose the link option then Skype will display a combined list of friends. This is an area we are still working through so please let us know about your experience.

    • Updated visual design.
    • We have refreshed and flattened the Skype UI with a simpler and less cluttered look.

    • Removal of the online user count.
    • We have removed the online user counter at the bottom of your Skype Contacts list to unclutter the UI and make more space for your friends within the contacts list.

    • When you change your profile picture, we will now show you all of your previous Skype profile pictures so you don’t have to look through old files if you want to use a previous image.

    • Improved telemetry.
    • We are constantly looking for ways to improve the quality of our product. To that end we are adding additional “opt-in” telemetry reports for users who choose this option: “Tools>> Options>>Advanced>>Tick “Help improve Skype…” The reports may contain your Skype ID and or Microsoft Account ID but we will not use it to identify you or contact you.
