Skype Release 3.8 for Windows
The main improvements are in the “audio engine” whichÂ should meanÂ significantly reduced background noise, less delay, fewer call drops, and fewer cut-outs especially when both sides are using 3.8.
The new version also lets you change your headset, headphones or microphone without messing around with sound settings.
Another change is thatÂ the user’s profile imageÂ on incoming authorisation requests are now hidden by default – this is because some people have been using “offensive” images – so you now you’llÂ have to click through to see the hidden avatar.
This release also includes a number of video-related bug fixes and “other tweaks.”
