For some time it has been possible to make use of the Facebook chat feature of the social network from within the app – no need to visit the web site. The latest beta version adds the option to conduct video calls with Facebook users in addition to the existing option to do so with your Skype contacts.

Other new features include the ability to conduct group video chats, and this is a very useful option for anyone who wants to use the program to conduct online meetings. There is now also support for push-to-talk which enables you to use Skype much a walkie-talkie. Ideal when gaming, this feature means that you need not be constantly involved in a voice chat, but you can choose when ou would like to share what you are saying.

Available for Mac and PC – there are also more limited clients available for iOS and Android – Skype has become a serious communication tool. The ability to not only conduct voice and video chats, but also send and receive files, and even make phone calls to landlines and mobile phones, means that Skype is far more versatile than other messaging tools.

What's New in Skype 6 Final Version 2012

  • Microsoft and Facebook Account Integration - Sign up and sign-in is easier than ever. You can now sign into Skype using your Microsoft or Facebook account - there's no need to create a new Skype account. This makes it even easier to connect with friends on Skype without having to set up another account.
  • IM friends on Messenger - Now you can instant message your Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook.com contacts via Skype all in one place. If you use a Microsoft account today, merging your accounts is easy - just sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account.
  • Calling with Messenger friends is coming soon - We're working on polishing a feature which will enable audio and video calls to Windows Live Messenger customers using Skype desktop clients. The feature will be available in coming weeks.
Here's more of what's new with Skype 6.0 for Windows Desktop:
  • Skype localized to six more languages (Thai, Croatian, Slovenian, Serbian, Catalan and Slovak)
  • Visual user interface refresh
  • We have refreshed and flattened the Skype UI with a simpler and less cluttered look. We have updated the look of the instant messaging and SMS areas as well.
  • Removal of online user count
  • We have removed the online user counter at the bottom of your Skype Contacts list to unclutter the UI and make more space for your friends within the contacts list.
  • Display previously created profile pictures
  • When you change your profile picture, we will now show you all of your previous Skype profile pictures so you don't have to look through old files if you want to use a previous image.
  • Improved telemetry
  • We are constantly looking for ways to improve the quality of our product. To that end we are adding additional "opt-in" telemetry reports for users who choose this option: "Tools>> Options>>Advanced>>Tick "Help improve Skype..." The reports may contain your Skype ID and or Microsoft Account ID but we will not use it to identify or contact you.
Here's more of what's new with Skype 6.0 for Mac Desktop:
  • Open Chats in Multiple Windows
  • We hear your feedback! With this release we've added support to open chats in multiple windows.
  • Retina Display Support
  • We also added another feature you've asked for - support Retina display. Now you can take full advantage of improved usability and of higher resolution screens.
