New Skype beta Version for Windows

Skype

eBay may have recently sold off Skype to the highest bidder, but the VoIP app for desktop and mobile is still in development.

On Thursday, Skype announced Skype 4.2 for Windows beta and a new beta build for Symbian phones. Skype 4.2 beta for Windows desktop users is small as updates go, reinstating Skype Access–a Wi-Fi hot-spot connector–and call transferring that Skype had removed when overhauling its app and updating to version 4 (now in version 4.1), a build that includes screen-sharing.

You can scrutinize the full release notes here.

In addition to tightening up Skype for the desktop, the company announced it will issue a limited beta release for Symbian Series 60 handsets. There’s compatibility for 17 Nokia handsets at launch, with use on more phones on the way.

The feature set is basic at present, with just the following features in place:

  • Free Skype-to-Skype calling
  • Call phones with Skype credits or subscription
  • Receive calls on your online number
  • Instant messaging
  • Group conversations
  • File sending and receiving
