Skype 3.5

Skype today launched its self-titled Skype 3.5, the latest version of its VoIP software that shifts attention to video. The new version allows users to share videos either as a discussion point or simply as a mood-setter that runs in the background. Clips can be linked directly from more popular sites such as Dailymotion or MetaCafe that have struck deals with Skype, the phone provider says. Any owner with a webcam can also take still photos in the middle of a video chat to keep them for posterity.

Voice features have also been updated to let callers either automatically redial busy or unanswered numbers and to transfer calls to other Skype users, including groups. The updated version is currently available for free to Windows users, though placing or receiving calls with real-world numbers requires one of Skype's paid subscriptions or prepaid cards. Mac and Linux versions have not been updated.
