Windows users can now enjoy the benefits of high quality video, granted they have a webcam capable of recording HD video, as well as a fast enough internet connection.

This update also finally sees the integration of group screen share, which enables sharing your screen in conference calls, rather than with just one person at a time. Group screen share is currently only available to Skype Premium members, however.

Features and improvements of Skype 5.8 for Windows are:

  • Full HD video-calling
  • Support for Facebook audio and video-calling (beta)
  • Group screen sharing
  • Hide offline Facebook contacts
  • Push to Talk
  • Skype updater service
  • Bing Toolbar integration

Skype on Galaxy S



The Android version of the popular Skype app was first launched only a couple of months ago and now we can welcome its first major update which makes Skype for Android fully compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S devices out there and allows you to store the app on the device SD card.


The recently updated Skype app for Android-powered devices brings along only two improvements but those are definitely worth mentioning. First off, if your smartphone or tablet is based on the Froyo, you will be able to store the app on your microSD memory card. As for the other novelty brought by the refreshed Skype app, the version released back on 5 October had some issues with Samsung Galaxy S smartphones but those should now be done with.


There is a tiny little catch, the latest version of the Android-Skype will only be compatible with your Galaxy S if its running the Android 2.2 froyo.


You can now:

  • Use the app on your Samsung Galaxy S, as long as its running Android OS 2.2 or later.
  • Store the app on your phone SD card if its running Android OS 2.2 or later.

If you store the app on your SD card, the data Skype uses while the app is running is still stored on the internal memory of your phone. We expect this to take up around 15MB of space for most people.

skype Win8


The upcoming version of Skype for Windows 8 has leaked showing off an interface optimized for touch interfaces (Screenshot Above), like Windows 8 RT for tablets.

The New App support Microsoft's Modern UI (previously known as Metro UI), Some highlights include the ability to pin favorite contacts, as well as use pay-as-you-go and monthly payment options for landlines.





Not only is a Windows Phone Skype app incoming, but Microsoft will "further integrate" the VoIP service into future versions of its smartphone OS, according to Skype CEO Tony Bates. Details on the nature of the deeper integration are still unclear, though the assumption is that just as Android allows outgoing and incoming calls to be routed over either traditional mobile networks or via VoIP Windows Phone will give users the option to choose the cheapest route for their calls, as well as presumably sync Skype contacts with the handset address book and show presence status.



Microsoft acquired Skype back in October, at the time promising a "ubiquity of the Skype experience" and reassuring users that "communication across every device and every platform will remain a primary focus." At the time, that was seen as a commitment to maintaining versions of Skype for Mac, Android, iOS and other platforms.
