Skype Insider Program, which allow users to test out upcoming builds of the communication service is announced for iOS, macOS, Android, and Windows.
With this announcement, Skype joins the already growing list of the Insider Programs that include: Windows, Office, and mobile apps like Office Lens and OneDrive on Android. Microsoft just yesterday only added Xbox to Insiders.
So, if you want to access Skype Preview, you’ll need to be on the Fast ring, and keep in mind, this does not include the Skype Preview UWP app, which Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring can already test preview builds of the app. And that you’ll also be able to install preview versions alongside the regular Skype app.
As a Skype Insider, you can share following Skype experiences as:
- You will have early access to Skype software and services updates and improvements.
- You will be able to give early feedback on these improvements and as well as help us iron out any quirks before we release them broadly.
- On top of that you will be able to submit your suggestions on what you would like to see in the Skype app in the future
Those interested can sign-up the form here, Microsoft will then notify you within one business day with steps on how to get started.
