Because of fierce competition involving messengers like WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger and others, the Skype It no longer has the relevance of yore. Still, Microsoft (which purchased the service in 2011) released a new version of Microsoft Skype for web that should be very useful.
In the announcement, however, highlighting the news, however, the company made it clear that users can take advantage of the latest features of desktop apps (Windows 10 and macOS 10.12 or higher) in this web version, provided they use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers or ie if you use Safari, Firefox or Opera, you are out of the party.
Skype for web has features such as HD video conferencing (whether it's just one person or a group video conference, with the right to reaction and all), ability to record calls, notifications panel (to check reactions to your messages, messages from your your name, if anyone has quoted you and more), seeks to find exactly what you were wanting in a conversation and a media gallery (for you to find files, links, photos, etc.).
The look of the web app has also been redone and now looks much more like the Windows app, which should make things a lot easier for users of the Microsoft operating system.
