Customizable themes: From professional to playful, the Skype Preview on Desktop, Mac, and Linux lets you personalize your conversations with our colorful themes, keep it simple with our classic theme, or go easier on your eyes with the dark theme. @mentions, message reactions and a new notification panel: Stay on top of your day with help from the notification panel. Quickly jump back into conversations where you were @mentioned, and see how people reacted to what you’ve said. New chat media gallery: Finding content shared in a chat has never been easier with the chat gallery. Easily find that photo, link or document. Improved chat list view: Find the style that’s best for you – standard or compact. Sort the list by recent, unread, or who is active on Skype right now. Enhanced group calls: Customize your group call experience with drag and drop ease. Say it with an emoji using our new in-call reactions, too! Message history: All the instant messages you’ve sent and received in your conversations, as well details of any calls you've had on Skype are stored in the cloud for 2 years, so you can access it when you're signed in to Skype on any device.
