Microsoft is slowly reverting Skype back to usefulness

Microsoft seem to have actually listened to some of the feedback they have been receiving from users of the new Skype. Two of the new features, Highlights and Capture will be discontinued as it seems no one wanted to use them instead of continuing with WhatsApp or SnapChat. The interface will remain a compromise between the clown vomit version released earlier this year and the simple interface many new and loved. As well, the newest versions of Skype, barring the Skype UWP app on Windows 10, will now natively support call recording which is something we have not been able to do since Microsoft killed support for third party applications. The staff at The Inquirer are still not planning on switching back yet however.
"Here's the thing. Skype hasn't "just worked" for a long time and people will take some convincing that there's been much of a change. INQ abandoned Skype some time ago for office use because it was so appallingly unreliable."
