Skype snuck an interesting new feature into its preview build of the Skype Windows Store app late last week.

The new version of Skype Preview can now perform real-time spoken word translations via Skype Translator when calling landlines and mobile phones—no Skype required on the receiving end.

This is a huge deal, bringing Skype one step closer to becoming a true universal translator.

To try out the new version of Skype Preview you ll need to be running the latest version of the Windows 10 Insider preview build on the fast ring—Build 14986.

Once you re on that build of Windows 10, download and install the latest version of Skype Preview.

If you already have Skype Preview installed just check the Windows Store for any updates.
