Download: Skype 5.0 for Windows out of Beta, integrates Facebook News Feed and Phonebook

A new version of Skype for Windows has been announced. This version integrates the Facebook News Feed and Phonebook into Skype, making it easier to stay connected with the people and communities you care about.

Skype has revitalised the look and feel, making voice and video calling, instant messaging, screen sharing and file sharing intuitive and easy to navigate.

You can now also bring even more of your family and friends together with the new group video calling feature available in open beta.

What’s new in this version:

– Call and text friends from your Facebook News Feed and Phonebook.
– Group video beta: get together with loved ones and colleagues over video.
– Automatically recover dropped calls.
– New, easier to use design.

With Facebook integration, you can:

– See your Facebook News Feed in Skype
– Post status updates that can be synced with your Skype mood message
– Comment and like friends’ updates and wall posts
– Call and SMS your Facebook friends on their mobile phones and landlines
– Make a free Skype-to-Skype call if your Facebook friend is also a Skype contact.

The new Skype Home also serves as the dashboard for your Skype experience, with a feed of mood messages from your contacts, and tutorials on everything like how to make a video call.
