Microsoft is working hard these days at improving their software products. It was only a couple of weeks ago that they launched their new operating system, the Windows 10 and now Microsoft released a massive update for Skype.
Microsoft’s Major Skype Update
Microsoft has finally released a major Skype update that is going to finally bring Skype into the year 2014. Many Skype users were complaining about the bad user interface and the lack of updates for one of the most popular video calling program in the world.
With the new major Skype update, users are getting loads of improvements, such as an improved video chat experience, a free group video calling, side-by-side windows and a multi-tasking feature. The side-by-side windows make file sharing very easy!
The major Skype update is made available across all platforms: desktops, mobile and tablets for both Windows and Mac. Skype 7.0 is available for download starting today, so go on and give it a try!
Skype executive director, Tom Huang, had this to say about their major Skype update:
We’ve made the Skype experience consistent whether you are using your mobile device or your desktop PC. Now, you’ll see thumbnail pictures of your contacts, a new bubble-style chat design, and consistent icons for chat, video calls and audio calls.
He added that the company is constantly working towards improving the experience of the service. Even if you’re not a Skype enthusiast, but you do have Skype on your computer, we recommend you install the major Skype update.
