Skype

Version: 6.0.59.2968 || Release Date: 2012-12-05 || License: Freeware App Owner: arne

What we've got is a simple bit of software we want to give you. It'll let you make free calls to your friends all over the world. And we don't want any money for it. It's free.

You could think of us as the big, free Internet telephony company. We prefer to think of ourselves as a big group hug, even a present. Yes! that's it; we're a present; but without the ribbon.

This version (2.6.0.137) does not work with Plantronics 510 bluetooth headset. Had to revert to 2.6.0.72 Beta.

Gave up trying to find a cordless stereo bluetooth headset for under $200. Got a cordless USB handset instead for $15 from china on ebay instead. Note that you need to download the Mac client SkyMACmate yourself as it doesn't come included on the installer cd.

Works well and allows me to make calls with my Windows friends.

Also the hidden setting in the recent builds that allows one to use 640×480 video is a really nice addition.

Also I love the new interface!

Not a cool interface, but it works.

Anyone got Bluetooth headsets working with Skype which they can recommend?

Works very well. Wouldn't mind the added option of choosing the icon colours like windows users do

the new universal beta version with video is out. works great so far. there's some echoing but the video looks good!

Good for charring to PC users. However, their Linux builds are heaps out of date and require brutal hacking to run on modern Linux systems. As well as this, they are x86 linux only - PPC Linux people are out of the question. And the Mac version doesn't have video. Oh well, we've got iChat, and that walks all over this.

The shortlived beta version 1.5 is a big step up from 1.4.X. Video is supported and the interface is much cleaner. Hopefully whatever drove them to remove it will be fixed soon and be back online!
