The new version of Skype for Windows
became available and certainly will please many users. Firstly, the owners of gaming headsets Razer Kraken, which recently ceased to hear the other party during a call. Secondly, people who have experienced a large number of running SkypeBrowserHost.exe
processes. And third, those who have long been dreaming of re-transmit their computer sounds to contacts during a call (the truth is this function is not available yet for all users).
Probably, I’m rejoicing too early, but running the new version of Skype using the /secondary parameter in the folder
are created a separate file
for each account (for example,
and so on). This means that is not excluded that developers will return back automatic authentication when using multiple Skype simultaneously.
It is worth mentioning that Skype 184.108.40.206 for Windows adds a new system requirement — mandatory availability of Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable package. In connection to this, if this package isn’t installed on the system installation or update of Skype will take longer than usual because Skype downloads and installs it automatically. So do not be alarmed that the inscription “Installing Skype: process can take several minutes to” hanging too long.
