Skype 6.0.0.126 for Windows Desktop

Recently has been published the new, sixth version of Skype for Windows Desktop. It's focused on better Facebook and Microsoft integration. Now you can stay connected with your friends from Facebook, Windows Live Messenger, Outlook, and Hotmail in one place. You can also use your Facebook or Microsoft account to sign into Skype – you don't have to create a new Skype account anymore.

Traditionally for every major version, the Skype interface has noticeably updated. As the developers say, it became simpler and less cluttered. There has also been removed the counter of online users over the world on the bottom of contact list.

Besides updated design, Skype got something new functional: window of changing profile picture contains the list of your previous avatars. It could help you if you will want to set one of your old pictures.

Of the rest of changes can be noted that Skype is available on six new languages (Slovenian, Serbian, Croatian, Thai, Slovak, and Catalan) and it acquired the automatic sending of reports of Skype work. It's disabled by default but you can enable it in Tools → Options → Advanced → The last checkbox (with label “Help improve Skype...”). By enabling this option, Skype will send to Microsoft some information about your Skype work including your Skype or Microsoft account ID. They assure that the data in any case wouldn't be used to identify or contact you.
