With 3.2, you can take a picture of yourself using your webcam with a new video snapshot feature and add it to your profile so that friends and family can see how you are doing. You can also import address books from other applications (including Hotmail and Gmail), as well as sending “Share Skype” invitations to anyone not signed up.
The latest version of Skype also includes enhanced echo cancellation and background noise reduction technologies in order to improve the sound quality, a Send Money feature so you can easily send cash via PayPal and an improved client interface to check back through your transactions, history and sent messages.
Carter Adamson, director, desktop products for Skype said, “Skype has always been committed to giving people the best internet calling experience possible and we feel we’ve hit the mark with the latest version. Now you can really individualise your profile and make it even more unique with video snapshot, put all the contact details for your online relationships in one place and enjoy exceptional sound quality so much so that you feel like you’re actually in the same room as the person you’re calling.”
