In fact, it is not uncommon that from time to time it is updated with new functions, being one of the last to arrive the option to share screen. Now, following the trend of other apps, Skype has joined the dark mode.

An interesting point is that, if you didn't have the app installed and install it now, As soon as you start it, it will ask you what mode you want to use. Also, if you select the "Use system settings" option, Skype will activate and deactivate the dark mode when activated or deactivated on our mobile.

To do this, open any chat, press the "+" button, select "Schedule call", choose the date, time and when you want to receive the notification and send it to the contact. This must be accepted for the programming to take place.
