We know what your'e thinking, we know Metro is dead and it is know called Modern UI but Metro sounds so much better. Anyways, Neowin has been sent an image of Skype for the modern UI and this is our first look at Microsoft's redesign for Skype.
While we don't have much to go on other than the image we see above, we can tell that progress is coming along to bring Skype up to parity with the Modern UI. The layout, as you would expect, is finger friendly and is much flatter compared to the current Skype layout. You can see at the top of the image that the application is in the Preview state; this aligns to how Microsoft shipped out early Modern UI apps with Preview builds of Windows 8.
We don't have any more information about the platform or when it will be released but we are working to acquire more information. But, given where the application came from, we would suspect that it should be here sooner, rather than later.
Thanks for the tip Anon!
