Microsoft Updates Skype for Windows Desktop

A new version of the Skype client is now available for download

If you’re an avid Skype user, you most likely know that Microsoft has promised to bring several important improvements to all clients, including those running on its own Windows platforms.

Today, the company introduced an update for the Windows desktop version, but as compared to what people might expect, it only brings small improvements in terms of performance and stability.

Skype doesn’t bring any new feature and this is probably one of the reasons why the company hasn’t actually released a changelog for this build. The app most likely received updates supposed to fix bugs and any other issues that might affect reliability, so no new announcement is necessary right now.

Keep in mind that this update is only available for the desktop working environment of Windows, even though the company also continues work on the Modern port of Skype. As far as the Windows desktop version is concerned, it can be installed on pretty much all editions of the operating system, including Windows XP and the newly-launched Windows 8.1.

Overall, this update should be installed by all users even though it doesn’t bring anything exciting, so go ahead and download Skype as soon as possible to make sure that all bugs are fixed.
