My sister in the States uses what she calls the Beta version of Skype. I use Skype but never heard of a Beta version. Does anyone know what she is talking about?

Beta is usually in computer terms Software that is being tried out but not on general release to the public as it can still have some bugs in it. People try beta versions usually so they can report any problems they find and they can be fixed before the definative program is released.

Unless you know what you are doing STEER CLEAR until the software is officially released to all.

I got the message and appreciate your replies. It appears my sister in the States has problems she does not even realise she has.
