It is possible to do that again?

Or is just for some developers?

Skypes are unified!

Microsoft finally replaced Skype UWP for Windows 10 with the same
Skype that we've been calling Skype 8 for Windows Desktop. This was
announced many months ago but took a while to happen.

I have released version 2018.04.2 of the Skype add-on for NVDA, at
https://www.dlee.org/skype/NVDA/skype.nvda-addon

Apologies for the funny version number btw; I only noticed the "2018"
after making several release announcements.

Features:

URL change! The old skype/electron URL will still work for a while,
but the above URL is the new location for this add-on. Please update
any pointers accordingly.

Works with both Skype for Windows Desktop (Skype 8) and Skype UWP for
Windows 10, which is now the same interface.

Fixes review cursor navigation in messages in a chat history list. I
did this long ago, but it broke at some point.

A note for anyone switching Skype incarnations in response to this
unification:

If you are migrating from Skype for Windows Desktop to the newly
identical Skype for Windows 10, check your settings (Ctrl+Comma),
because settings from one version may not be automatically applied to
the other even though the interfaces are the same. I recommend paying
particular attention to where Skype says your audio will come from and go to.

Enjoy.
