Skype 5.0 Beta: Features Include 10 Way Video Calling

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.

Have you used the Skype 5.0 beta? If so, what changes do you like?
