Skype is set to recommit itself to phone calls, video chats and messages. As a result, it dropped the Highlights feature. They removed the Highlights and Capture from the user interface and introduced three buttons at the bottom of the app, Chats, Calls, and Contacts. Skype Highlights feature was similar to Stories on Instagram and Snapchat. They removed the feature to focus on calls and chats.

The users who have used Highlights will be able to download all of the posts they put up on the site until September 30th. Peter Skillman, Skype’s director of design, further revealed that the users can expect more updates to Skype over the next several months. Their main focus will be on calls, chat, and contacts.
