Remarkable features of Skype

Skype for Windows

A new version of the new Skype for Windows was released, which slightly improves the interface of the settings section (for example, added graphic icons). Also, I noticed that in Skype for Windows a new option appeared in the privacy section: Share location with Bing (according to a hint, this is necessary to improve your Skype and Bing search results).
