Skype 1.4

Skype 1.4 is now available to the general public. The product was in the beta stage since August 2005, it was code-named Aviator. It offers better voice quality and has been launched at a time when VoIP is going mainstream in a big way and everyone from Internet companies to cable operators keen on jumping on to the VoIP bandwagon. (continued...)

Skype 1.4 has a call forwarding option that allows users to forward the call to another Skype name free of charge and to a landline or mobile number for a small fee. Skype’s partnership with companies like American Greetings, Qpass, etc will allow users to download pictures and ring tones and add personalization buttons. Skype’s move to provide these offerings that start at $ 1.20 is probably based on the research by Arc Group that places the market for ring tones at $ 5.2 billion by 2006.

Skype 1.4 has high compatibility with Microsoft applications, for example personal contacts from Outlook can be directly imported to the Skype buddy list.
