AAWP Insight #186: Skype, Panorama, and more
Published by Rafe Blandford at
In this extra length AAWP Insight #186, hosted by Steve and Rafe, we start by talking about Skype on Windows Phone 8.1 (no more development), which leads to some other Skype connected thoughts, including how we will (or won't) access bots. Other topics covered in the podcast include the new Panorama mode for Windows 10 Camera, updates for Outlook Calendar, details on the latest Insider updates, thoughts on the Acer Jade Primo, and more.

- Skype changes going forwards, no more development of the old 8.1 app
- Outlook Calendar live tile now shows up to 3 events (up from 1!)
- Windows 10 Camera gains Panorama mode
- Fast ring Insiders get (Redstone) build 14393
- 'Skype Preview' UWP now available... to Windows Insiders, SMS to be built-in later this summer
- Google+ comes to Windows 10 Mobile (thanks HTML5)
- Acer Liquid Jade Primo and Desktop Kit - unboxing and first impressions
- The classic Lumia 1020 and Windows 10 - the pros/cons edition!
[Steve] PS. In the podcast I expressed optimism that the new Skype UWP app could be made compatible with Windows 10 Mobile 'Threshold' (so that older phones that have been upgraded by the Insider programme might be part of the party), but it seems that this is something of a long shot as Redstone includes specific noise cancellation routines that Skype UWP relies on and which Threshold lacks. Ah well. I live in hope!
