Skype 4.0 for Windows Goes Back to Basics - Never Miss a Message

By Clint Boulton  |  Posted 2008-10-01 Print this article Print

System tray (right) and animated icon alerts in Skype 4.0 for Windows make it harder for users to miss incoming messages, a common complaint in Beta 1.

After Skype launched the first beta of Skype 4.0 for Windows June 18, several users complained about the default full-screen view, lost instant messages and the loss of group contacts capabilities. Skype listened to feedback from 50,000 users and made some changes to improve the popular VOIP platform for customers. The changes roll out Oct. 1 for users; eWEEK has a preview of some screenshots ahead of the launch.
