Split view in Skype again!

29/08/2019 | Skype Blogs | Split view

A few months back, we announced the launch of split window for Windows 10, which lets you put your contact list in one window, and each conversation you open in separate windows. We’re pleased to say that this feature is now available for all versions of Windows, Mac, and Linux on the latest version of Skype.*

You can drag your contact, and conversation windows anywhere on your screen to really personalize the way you use Skype. Never mix up conversations in Skype again and have power over which window you interact with.
