Skype 5.0 Download for Windows Now Available

Skype has announced that the latest version is now ready for download. Skype 5.0 is the version number and it brings a few new features to Skype users on Windows based computers.

The first feature is integration with Facebook. Skype now integrates with your Facebook News Feed and the Phonebook in Skype to help keep you connected with those friends on the Social networking service.

A new feel has been given to Skype 5.0 that brings a new look to the service. Skype says that the design is aimed at making the service easier to use when making calls, making video calls and sending messages to other users.

Finally, Group video calling is now available. This part of the service is still in an open beta but still allows you to call several people (10 people in total) at the same time if needed.

You can grab the latest download from here.

    Thanks for sharing this useful information. I’ve downloaded Skype 5.0 and now, using it. Not so much changes, I love the Facebook New Feed.

  2. I really don’t like the new skype. It freezes everytime I try and take a snapshot! And my laptop is fairly new too so that is not the problem. I’m finding the old version and downloading it again straight away!
