In a short blog post Skype informed users it is testing a refreshed UI for a small portion of Windows desktop users and select Mac users. The new UI aims to bring a clean and modern look to Skype, providing a coherent experience across all clients.
The Skype team will be analyzing test results, gathering feedback, and fine-tuning the experience before releasing to the entire user base.
The blog did not provide any screenshots of the new UI. Comment below have been lucky enough to receive the new UI.
