Skype 3 for Windows

The next release of Skype version 3 for Windows is now available. Skype for Windows is released on December 20, 2006. So upgrade now.

Some of the Cool Features in Skype 3.0 includes:

  • * Call anyone else using Skype, anywhere in the world.
  • * See who you are talking to with video calls.
  • * Chat with one person or have a group chat with up to 100 people at the same time.
  • * Conference calling with up to four other people at the same time.
  • * Send files and photos to each other easily.
  • * Search the web with the Google Toolbar (optional install).

System Requirement

  • * PC running Windows 2000 or XP. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
  • * Internet connection (broadband is best, GPRS is not supported for voice calls, and results may vary on a satellite connection).
  • * Speakers and microphone – built-in or separate.
  • * To make video calls you’ll need a computer with at least a 1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and of course a webcam.
  • * We also recommend that you have at least a 400 MHz processor, 128 MB RAM and 15 MB free disk space on your hard drive.

Skype for Windows can be downloaded here. Builds for other platforms are also available, i.e. Linux or Macintosh.
