Skype 4.0 Beta 3 Drops with New Features

Skype has recently put out a new, third Beta version of their Skype 4.0 software application, which looks pretty much the same as Beta 2 on the surface – scratch a little bit deeper and you will see that there are some new features to report upon. With version 4.0, Skype would like to end up with a software application that is so user friendly that even people that have never even heard of Skype will be able to use it trouble free, and would also appreciate it if people would start noticing its other functions, not just VoIP (thinks like video calls and landline calls ).

About the new features in Skype 4.0 Beta 3, the final Beta release on Skype 4.0’s development process, that I was talking about:


- The sound quality of all Skype calls should improve thanks to the implementation of a bandwidth manager. There is also the option to provide Skype with feedback on the quality if said calls. Since we are on the topic of reporting, you must also be made aware of the fact that you can report abusive use of Skype.
- You can much more easily go through your recorded calls and conversations thanks to a full history feature.
- Microsoft Outlook contacts support.

Please keep in mind that if you download Skype 4.0 Beta 3 and run it on your machine, Skype would very much like to hear from you and find out what are your opinions on this recent release. If you liked something in particular, let them know; if you are experiencing bug issues or would like some new feature added, let them know; if you don’t like something in Skype 4.0 Beta 3, let them know. Just click here and type away.
