After updating to the latest version of Skype for Windows desktop, I was presented with a 5-step Welcome Tour.

Step 1 – welcome to Skype for Windows desktop version 6.22.81.104.



Step 2 – Skype comes with a new interface that has been redesigned for a richer chat experience. It features more spacing between contacts and chats, previews for unread chats, thumbnail pictures of your contacts, and a new bubble-style chat design.



The Skype Team explained that it redesigned Skype for Windows desktop to make it easier to chat and share. It must be mentioned here that the redesigned interface feels a lot like Skype for mobile. That’s because Skype wants to make the Skype experience consistent on all your devices.

Step 3 – From Skype’s new interface you can easily share your favorite photos with others and bring conversations to life by using super-sized emoticons. Shared photos are presented inline on Skype’s interface.



Step 4 – free group video calling lets you talk to multiple people at once. Skype is proud that it’s always created opportunities for people to communicate freely and easily. Making group video calling available to everyone, free of charge, is part of Skype’s aim to help people say in touch with one another.



Step 5 – keep the conversation going by switching from Skype for Windows desktop to Skype for Windows Phone or another mobile device.



Alongside Skype for Windows desktop 6.22, Skype rolled out Skype for Mac 7.1. This latest release comes with support for Apple’s OS X 10.10 Yosemite and with an enhanced group profile that makes it easier to copy a link or to leave a group conversation.

You can get the latest Skype for Mac version right here on FindMySoft.
