Skype 7.27.0.101 for Windows Desktop

A new version of Skype for Windows Desktop is available for download. In this release has been updated the Skype core library and it seems this might potentially fix the bug due to which instead of making group calls Skype creates new groups with random name like (?) 12345678 #username/$2;0.

Also, Skype 7.27.0.101 for Windows Desktop adds some improvements to Skype Windows Desktop and Preview App coexistence, including a fix to stop users from seeing promo screen repeatedly. Should be noted that developers are soon going to enable a screen that is shown when starting classic windows app on Windows 10 to remind them of the Preview app. This screen asks to supply feedback on why users are reverting to the classic app after having used the preview app. This will help the preview app prioritize the most requested features.

    Laurence "GreenReaper" Parry,
    They seem to have taken out sending messages to non-cloud-based group chats, requiring you to upgrade if you try to talk in one (the message is not sent). Avoid like fire if you use this functionality.

    Heather Miller,
    Is there an incompatibility between Skype 7.27, Vista, and IE9? Since downloading the latest Skype update in August, there is no longer any sound when I use Skype. Video is OK, webcam audio is working, speakers are working, but no sound. When I try to do the Skype Echo test, it either rings just once, then cuts out, or I get the message that Skype has stopped working.

    Any ideas/comments?
