Skype for Windows

Today the Skype for Windows has been updated to version, and despite the fact that this is a minor release, some of the innovations may be attributed to the major version. For the most part, the changes relate to the user interface, in particular to the configuration and design of the chat. Also, the Skype for Windows makes it easier to access your profile, change the mood status, find contacts and new friends.

In addition, with the new Skype release the list of your favorite contacts is stored not only locally on the computer, but also on the Skype server. Thus, when running Skype on other devices or after reinstalling the operating system, favorite list will be loaded automatically.
