Microsoft took advantage of the week to update several of its services, bringing news to all its Insider users. The company made available to Xbox One owners yesterday the DTS: X for Headphones, a space audio application similar to Dolby Atmos, in addition to launching this week the first beta of its Microsoft Launcher for Android.
Today, the Redmond giant brings good news to Skype testers, launching new features on Android, iOS, and Windows 10. For the Google system, the company finally released integration with Android Auto, with the service reading messages received aloud, in addition to allowing actions to be taken with voice commands during driving. On Apple devices, it is now possible to change the background of conversations on devices running iOS 12 or higher.
Finally, the version for Windows 10 received responses through mentions, in addition to performing automatic login through the Microsoft account registered on the device. The update also brought corrections in its Android app, fixing flaws in notifications and the Meet Now function, and is being released gradually, and it may take a while for all users to receive it.
It is also worth remembering that Microsoft revised its Insider program on Windows, replacing the Cycles system with the Channels, which have a dedicated for developers, a beta, and a Release Preview. The novelty aims to simplify the life of testers, with only three different builds circulating among users.
