Skype 4.0 with anew interface
Skype 4.0 for Windows has been released in version 184.108.40.206. Besides a new interface the new version also delivers enhanced voice and video transmission. Furthermore the initial configuration has been made easier.
The developers had the Beta phase running for six months and according to product manager Mike Bartlett 1.2 million users participated.
The most striking new feature is the new interface that combines all elements into a single window. Of course all elements can be separated, too. The video window is now displayed at 640 x 480 pixels. The audio compression and the bandwidth manager have been upgraded, say the developers.
The recognition of microphones, headsets and cameras was enhanced in order to make the configuration easier for inexperienced users. Skype 4.0 can be downloaded from the official website. Registered and log in members of the PCGH community can also use the download link below.
