Microsoft is currently working hard to update the new modern Skype 8 with all necessary features as the company plans to end support for Skype Classic on November 1. Today, Microsoft announced that the Split View mode is now available in Skype preview for Windows 10.

Split View mode is available in Skype preview version 8.33.76.40 for Windows 10 and you'll need to join the Skype Preview program to get this update. You can enable it from the three dots (...) menu and once you do that, the app would open any conversations in independent windows. This is a feature that many power users enjoyed on Skype Classic and you can finally try it in the modern app.
