The wait is finally over for one of the modern Skype app's most requested features: split view. After testing with Skype Insiders for the past month or so, split view is now rolling out to everyone with Skype for Windows 10, allowing you to break your chats out into individual windows (via OnMSFT).
Instead of housing all of your chats within the main Skype window, split view lets you break each out into separate windows. You can turn the feature on by choosing "Enable split view mode" from the ellipses menu in your contact window. Enabling split view will shrink the main Skype window down to a list of contacts. Double-clicking on a contact will then open the chat in its own window. If split view isn't for you, it can be disabled from the same ellipses menu where you enabled it.
Split view was one of the most highly requested features for the modernized Skype app, so it's sure to be a welcome addition. It also comes alongside a handy update for Insiders, who can now share OneDrive files with contacts directly from the Skype chat window.
