Updated desktop client of Skype for Windows new Media Tool and preview URL in the chat
Desktop client Skype has recently received a new version number 7.16, which makes the program even easier and more practical. In particular, this update adds in the text entry area drawer (screenshot below) that enables you to send picture, document, or video message to a contact much faster.
When composing a message, the toolbar will automatically disappear, so as not to occupy space to enter text. To return the panel you need to click on the button with the paperclip.
The second change is to send URLS: now, if you share in the chat a link to a video or image it will automatically be converted to a sketch.
A new version is available not for everyone, so if you don’t see the update under Help> Check for updates, then just download the installation file and install the program manually.
