Skype 5.11 for Windows Build: - BETA


Skype 5.11 for Windows - Beta

Today we have released a Beta version of Skype 5.11 for Windows. In this release, we are enabling Skype users to reach even more of their friends and family. We've added beta support for:

Sharing Instant Messages with friends with Messenger
You can now sign in with your Microsoft account (formerly Windows Live ID), and see presence as well as send and receive IM messages from your friends who are using Messenger, Xbox, Hotmail or Outlook.com.

Improved Facebook integration
You can now sign in directly with your Facebook account log in, without needing to first create a Skype account.

Support for 6 new languages
We are excited to support our growing community around the world with new localized versions of Skype in Thai, Croatian, Slovenian, Serbian, Catalan and Slovak, bringing the total languages Skype supports to 38.

This is a Beta release and we want your help in identifying issues and providing us with feedback by visiting the Skype Support Network or on our public issue tracker.

Download and try the Beta today.

In addition, we have added new features and minor improvements to improve usability of the Skype for Windows client.
