Skype Gets a Makeover for Mac and Windows

Skype is getting a new look for Mac and Windows.

The Microsoft-owned video chat service on Thursday debuted version 7.0 for Mac and also offered a preview version for Windows.

Skype’s Tom Huang said the new versions had been redesigned to “make it easier to chat and share.”mac2

Users will now see thumbnail pictures of their contacts, a new bubble-style chat design, and consistent icons for chat, video calls and audio calls, making Skype consistent across mobile and desktop devices.

A new side-by-side design allows users to be sharing messages, photos, or files with one person while on another call.

“People love multi-tasking,” Huang wrote. “Many of you already exchange IMs while on a live call today. With the new side-by-side design, you can effortlessly multi-task on a voice or video call.”

On Mac, this feature only takes one click.

The update also includes improvements to file sharing. For instance, when sharing file types like Office documents and PDFs, the user will see file icons displayed “to make it easier to visually scan for and find different files in your chat history.”

Forget About Nine — Microsoft Leaps to Windows 10

Microsoft is, apparently, now counting by twos.

The company offered its first peak at its next operating system, Windows 10, on Tuesday. The previous system was Windows 8. Nine was skipped, company officials said, because the new system is that big of a step forward.

Windows 10 Terry Myerson

Executive vice-president of the Operating Systems group at Microsoft Terry Myerson announced Microsoft’s next Windows will be Windows 10.

“Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows, unlocking new experiences to give customers new ways to work, play and connect,” Terry Myerson, executive vice-president of the Operating Systems group at Microsoft, said in a press release.

“This will be our most comprehensive operating system and the best release Microsoft has ever done for our business customers, and we look forward to working together with our broader Windows community to bring Windows 10 to life in the months ahead.”

The unveiling took place at a press event in San Francisco with the company highlighting new features such as an easier flow from one task to another and a new and improved start menu with simpler search options.

One of the more exciting aspects of the system is its compatibility with Microsoft products. Users will be able to engage Windows 10 on a gamut of devices including the Xbox gaming console to PCs to smartphones. The company is also delivering a converged application platform for developers on all devices with a unified app store. This will enable developers to write an application once and deploy it easily across multiple devices, making discovery, purchase and updating easier than ever for customers.

An official launch date has not been established, though Microsoft said it expects Windows 10 to be available after next spring.

Microsoft Issues Invites to Sept. 30 Product Launch – Software Giant is Expected to Preview Windows 9

Windows 9 may soon be upon us.

Microsoft has sent out invitations for a special press event Sept. 30 at which the software firm is widely expected to announce its latest version of Windows.

Not much is known as yet about the new operating system — code-named Windows Threshold — although it is thought Microsoft will continue on with its numerical names. It is believed the new version will indeed be known as Windows 9.

ZDNet reported Microsoft is planning to launch a “technology preview” of Threshold which will enable users to test the operating system — but, to do so, they would need to have software updates automatically downloaded to the platform on a monthly basis.

Threshold — or Windows 9 — is expected to include a “mini Smart Menu,” separate windows for Metro-style apps running on the desktop and support for virtual desktops.

It is expected the operating system will launch as a beta preview soon after its debut.
