The new Skype is all about making it easier to stay in touch and feel closer to friends who are far away.

It’s got all the main features:

  • Free Skype-to-Skype calls.
  • Free video calls.
  • Free instant messaging.
  • Call phones and mobiles, send SMS.

This new UI is built for video while the older version focused on voice. Now by going full-screen, the functionality can be spread out and made much simpler. It also makes it a better video-chat client. There is a big green "video call" button now. There is picture-in-picture functionality, and you can move the thumbnail around that shows your video.

When you do a video chat, it really has the feeling of being in a video chat room. You can also pull in videos from Metacafe and DailyMotion (but not from YouTube). Skype 4.0 lets you import contacts from Outlook, Outlook Express, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail. (No Gmail, another snub to Google :X).

You can get Skype 4.0 from here.
