New Skype adds video transfer and sharing Skype has launched the latest version of their VoIP service today, dubbing the latest update Skype 3.5.
The update shifts the attention of the software towards video, allowing users to share video very easily. You can also link directly to clips on Dailymotion or Metacafe which have struck deals with Skype. The company also says anybody with a webcam can now take still photos in the middle of a video chat if they so choose.

Besides the video updates, voice features were also updated allowing for callers to "either automatically redial busy or unanswered numbers and to transfer calls to other Skype users, including groups."

Only the Windows version was updated however, so Mac and Linux users will have to wait a bit longer.

I think you don't have to wait that much.
