It claims to be "refocusing on the fundamentals of why most people use Skype-to make a call (often with video) and/or send a message". "This past year we explored some design changes and heard from customers that we overcomplicated some of our core scenarios".

Microsoft-owned telecommunications application software product, Skype, has listened to complaints that features added in the a year ago have overcomplicated the product, and has chose to strip back and simplify.

2017's overhaul introduced Capture and Highlights, with the former allowing users to access camera and editing features on the fly, while the latter displayed all that's been captured in a single hub that friends can see and react to. The feature is available on "most platforms" except the Skype UWP app on Windows 10, though Microsoft says it will arrive for the UWP app in the "coming weeks".

Skype admitted to its recent complex design changes, and said that it realised the critical need to maintain simplicity and familiarity. "Calling became harder to execute and Highlights didn't resonate with a majority of users", the company said in its blog post.

After the call, the recording is finalized and then posted to your chat where it is available for 30 days.

On mobile, the app is slimming down to three navigation buttons for Chats, Calls, and Contacts along a bottom bar, while the desktop app is grouping them with the Notifications button at the top-left of the window. A dark theme and "classic" blue theme is also new.
