But for making the affordable international calls from Skype, Skype credit or a subscription will be required. all user need to do is go to Skype.com and sign in and connect and then  click on the call phones tab, select your destination, dial the number you would like to call, and then hit the call button.

Now Users can watch YouTube videos without leaving Skype. The company has just enhanced the way URLs show up in Skype for The Web that contains an image from the web page. If somebody posts a YouTube video link in Skype for The Web, users will be able to watch it directly in Skype as well.

The chat conversation feature also upgrade, now users can add people who don't use Skype. What user need to do is click +New, share conversation and they will get a unique URL that can be shared with anyone looking to join.
