The new version of the popular Internet telephony app adds a couple of useful new features on top of the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements.
It integrates your Facebook news feed and phonebook into the Skype interface, making it easy to contact friends who use the social networking site (in this day and age, who doesn’t?)
There’s also support for group video chat, although it’s still in beta. You can now get multiple people together at the same time for video or audio chats—great for chaotic group meetings or getting families together. Remember that bandwidth usage will be heavy, and performance is still a bit iffy.
