is currently pushing out a new update to across desktop and mobile platforms. This is a sizeable update that brings plenty of new features to the communication app. While the changelog differs from desktop to mobile, this update is rolling out unified as Skype version 8.93.

This is a stable channel version of an update I reported on back in December. You may remember that original preview release brought a new design and natural language (Personal Voice) translation to group video calls.

Microsoft says the app now supports real-time translation for video calls and the translation will use your personal voice (TruVoice). This means the person who hears the translation of you speaking will hear it in an AI version of your actual voice.

To do this, the software samples words you speak and tunes the translation response to sounds the same. Microsoft says the feature currently supports English, French, Chinese, German, Spanish, and other languages.
