Skype Update 7.16 is Live, Adds Media Sharing Toolbar and More
If you are using Skype these days you should be updating it since Microsoft has released the version 7.16 a couple of hours ago.
Among a number of things that it adds, there are two functional and visual changes that are probably going to be welcomed by the users. Firstly, a media sharing toolbar has been added to the game and secondly, all users will now get a URL preview for every link that gets sent to them.
Here’s what Microsoft is saying about the new media sharing toolbar feature, which has been released with an aim of providing quick access to file sharing options for Skype users:
We’ve released a new toolbar which you can use to quickly share photos, files, video messages, contacts and emoticons. In your instant message window, you’ll now see shortcuts to these five sharing options. As you type, the toolbar will minimize itself so you can see more of what you type. To expand it again, just click the paper clip menu.
As far as the URL preview is concerned, Skype update 7.16 will let you know beforehand what the link you just got from someone is about. There will be image as well as video previews so that you are well-informed.
You can read up about the new update in detail at their official website.
