Download Skype for Windows

A new version of Skype for Windows 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

    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?

      Hi! Please try the Windows XP Installer and let me know if it works.
