Skype’s developers have been working on the next major release of their popular application, they have recently released a new beta version of Skype 5.0, which gives us an idea as to what we can expect in the future.
Previous beta versions of Skype 5.0 brought 5-way video chat, however this new beta allows 10-way video calling, which will no doubt be a popular edition for people who use Skype for video conferencing.
There is a new automated call recovery feature, apart from that there are no other major changes worth mentioning. As you would expect there are stability improvements and a refined user interface.
If you understand the stability and security issues you may experience when using beta version of applications you can download Skype 5.0 for Windows here.
