Microsoft launches new Skype Insiders Program for testers and feedback

Microsoft pretty much has an Insider program for all their products that this point. You've got the Windows Insider Program, the Office Insider Program, the Xbox Insider Program, and now the Skype Insider Program too. Microsoft has today announced that users can now sign up for the Skype Insider Program and begin testing pre-release builds and features for the platform.

As a Skype Insiders, you'll be able to take advantage of the following:

  • 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

The Skype Insider Program requires the user to register first before being given access to the Insider build of the Skype desktop app. Once signed up, you'll be given a link to download the preview version and get testing. Of course, as with all of Microsoft's Insider programs, Insiders are encouraged to submit feedback, including bugs and suggestions that you think will make the service better.

You can sign up for the Skype Insider Program at this link. You'll be required to sign into your Skype account first, and choose the platforms in which you plan to use Skype on.
