New Skype for Windows Offers Full HD Video Calls and Facebook Integration

The new version of Skype has been released for Windows. The new Skype for Windows version 5.8 is launched with a host of new features, such as full HD video-calling, group screen sharing and Facebook Integration.

The users having HD webcam will benefit from the full HD video calls feature the most, such as Logitech C920 that is capable of encoding video itself, eventually enhancing the video quality on older systems.

While the video calling for Facebook feature will also become handy for users not having Skype. Whenever a Facebook user wants to start video call with his/her buddy, just select the person and hit ‘video call’.

Group screen sharing feature is only available with Skype Premium that enables users to share their screen or an app window with other members of a conference call. Users need to click ‘+’ sign during the call and choose ‘share my screen’.

Some of the other notable features are: a push to talk hotkey, the ability to hide offline Facebook contacts and Bing Toolbar integration.

The latest version also addresses different bugs, particularly the one that disallowed users to add a phone number to a group belonged to a Facebook contact.
