Skype 2.0 with video feature available

Get your free downloads while they're hot

Skype Technologies SA has completed testing the latest version of its internet-telephony software with a new video feature and is now encouraging users to download it.

Version 2.0 of Skype's widely used VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) software is available for free here.

This version offers not only better call quality but also free one-to-one video conversations, according to Skype's website.

It also allows users to organise their contacts by creating groups, such as colleagues, friends and family, and provides new buttons to display their Skype status on their blog or web page.

All the changes and added features can be viewed here.

Currently, the software is available only for computers running Microsoft's Windows 2000 or XP. The video feature requires Windows XP.
