Emotive Experience in My People
See emoji from your pinned contacts
When you receive emoji from your pinned contacts you can now watch them appear and animate right from the taskbar! Have one of your pinned contacts send you an emoji via Skype (for example “(hero)”) and see what happens! If you’d like to turn this off, open taskbar settings by right-clicking on the taskbar.
The contacts pinned to your taskbar will now display a counter if there are unseen messages. That ensures you have at-a-glance access to communications you have missed from your pinned contacts.
Note: You might need to update Skype to version 11.16.556.0 to see notification badges when new Skype messages come in.
You now have two easy ways to share with your people in Windows 10! Drag-and-drop files directly onto the contacts in your taskbar to start an email. Or share directly to your contacts via the share picker by choosing from a list recommended people to email.
Improved Game Settings
- Broadcast using game-only audio: Under Settings > Gaming > Broadcasting, you can now choose “Per-app audio” to broadcast using only the game’s audio to Beam as opposed to the audio for your entire PC.
- Audio settings is now Game DVR in the Game bar: Microsoft has renamed the Audio settings page under the settings in a Game bar to be Game DVR. All Game DVR settings from the general gaming settings page have been moved to be under Game DVR. Per-app audio settings is also included here as well.
Other Settings Updates
- Settings > System > About now integrated with System Health: The About Settings page has been simplified to be accessible to all customers. In addition to the overall UX cleanup, also added a health section that pulls in information from the Windows Defender Security Center so you can see your system health at a glance.
- Tips and Videos in Settings: To help you learn more about your options, they are starting to add tips and videos to Settings. They are still growing our collection, but to start with you can find them in under Settings > Ease of Access or Settings > Update & security, a handful of other areas. More content is being added all the time. They are really hoping to get your help figuring out the best tip content for each page. You may have an idea of a tip that would help your least techie friend or family member. Please provide us feedback through the feedback hub!
Note: Depending on the size of the Settings window, you will find the tips either at the bottom of the page or on the side.
