From now on, users do not need to download the app which was a prerequisite before.

Thanks to a just-released update, Skype for Web is now just as functional as its desktop and smartphone app counterparts, with support for HD video calling now also on the web app.

The new features include HD video calling for both one to one calls and group calls, plus call recording and more, you can see all of the new features below.

All of these updates will reflect only on the Web version of Skype for desktop users running on Windows 10 or Mac OSX10.12 or higher.

For many, this is something that more or less makes sense, as Microsoft Edge is now in the process of migrating from the EdgeHTML engine to Chromium. Users on Chrome and Microsoft Edge can access Skype for Web here.

That said, it's not like Linux and Chromebook users are without recourse. Also, if you like our efforts, consider sharing this story with your friends, this will encourage us to bring more exciting updates for you. Microsoft has made major improvements to the Skype web app, so now you won't have to go through the hassle of downloading the software itself.

Just after Google has revamped its apps with new materialistic design, Microsoft is also revamping its apps with new features and abilities.

Once you install this extension, it adds a new button in the Firefox toolbar to let you choose a new user agent.

First and foremost, in Opera browser launch the Developer Tools menu or simply press Ctrl + Shift + I on the keyboard.

Unfortunately there's no indication if the Skype for Web version offers better call quality and connectivity than its standalone counterpart, with the latter always proving a bit spotty at the best of times in our experience. The aim is to make a positive and life-changing impact on the world.
