Internet savvy likes chatting and even making call from their friends from any part of the world.  In the previous years, Yahoo messenger is the common and well used software applications to chat and make calls. 

Recently, Skype dominates the cyber world through chat, calls, and even video calls.  It even surpasses the popularity of Yahoo messenger.

In the past, Skype has released different versions in two options: free and premium.

In this article I’m going to introduce the new Skype version 5.3, it’s new features and look.

I remember the first time I used this Skype version late last year; I encountered a lot of bugs.  But, to tell you frankly, I was a little bit excited by then seeing Facebook integrated with Skype.

Afterwards, Skype improved and launched the modified version 5.3.  As I mentioned earlier, it is integrated with Facebook.

I’ve been using this version for quite sometime and to tell you guys, I’m enjoying it. 

So, what's new with Skype version 5.3?  They are as follows:

  1. You can contact your friends easily: online and even offline

Before, once your friend is offline, there is no way for you to reach them.  Now, Skype allows you to call your friend through their mobile.  Isn’t cool?

  1. Improved dial pad

If you want to call your friends, you don’t need to memorize their number.  Once their contact details were saved, you simply type their name and call.  Very easy!

  1. Facebook integration

With Skype 5.3, you can easily view updates from your friends in Facebook.  You can easily send instant message or even chat with them in real time.  This is the main feature of this version.

  1. Updated and new emoticons

Aren’t satisfied with the previous emoticons??!! Well, Skype 5.3 offers variety of new emoticons to satisfy your needs.  Some of these are even animated to add fun while chatting with your friends.

  1. Group Video for Skype premium account

If you subscribe for premium account, one of the best features you can get is video group chat.  If you find it difficult to have video call through your mobile, then do it with Skype whether you are at home or in a travel.  No time to miss your love one since you can talk and see them online.

Also, Skype offers call and text services to mobile phones at an affordable price.  It makes connection possible in real time without spending much.

Aren’t you interested in trying it?  Well, you can easily download this software for free from the Internet and installed in your PC.  If you want other feature, you can subscribe under premium account at a reasonable rate.
