Windows Gets Skype Upgrade

video-call-compact-modeThe latest version of Skype for Windows, released today, attempts to offer higher quality calls while cutting back on bandwidth consumption. Skype for Windows 4.0 also offers a bigger video window, one-click video calling and adds a conversations tab so users can track multiple conversations and set calling preferences for individuals. The new features should win praise from the increasing number of non-technical users who, like my parents, use Skype for videoconferencing with their loved ones.
