There had been rumors that this update was in the works and now they have been made fact. So, was the Skype outage the other day part of this internal update? Possibly. But Skype has proven to be one of the most important communication tools in the world and now has gotten even better."

Shame the editors of Slashdot can't be bothered to read their own site these days - whilst the video calling is news, the submission could have been edited. ---P

    Is it just me, or does anyone else have zero interest in video chatting by holding a phone out two feet in front of my face?

    Please read what you are posting up. You posted up something that explains the Skype outage, and then posted up something else asking if this caused the Skype outage.

    I downloaded it this morning on my iPhone 4. Although it works, I am experiencing that sound and video are out of sync, low framerates, and pixelated video. Lousy job Skype. I tried it on both wifi and 3g connections with the other party being on a desktop connected via a broadband land line. I would have rather waited another 2 weeks for a more polished version that would be of the same quality as desktop-to-desktop video Skype.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.

Working...
