Have You Used Skype 4.0?

Skype, Internet Calls
With the announcement of Skype 4.0 on February 3rd, Twitter went berserk! I guess only 2 were enough to start the frenzy, and they did exactly that. @mashable and @scobleizer both announced the arrival of Skype 4.0 almost at the same time.

With the latest release, Skype 4.0 promises improved call quality. Here is what the Skype site has to say about it:

Call quality is substantially improved in the new version of Skype. The new audio codec achieves wideband audio quality using 50% less bandwidth than previously required. Moreover, it introduces super wideband audio that delivers crystal clear, richer and warmer sound to those using a compatible headset and a high quality broadband connection. The bandwidth manager interacts with the codec to adjust quickly to fluctuating bandwidth conditions to produce the most reliable sound.
Moreover, the videos are bigger and better with Skype 4.0. I have tried Skype 4.0 myself, and I feel that even if not amazing, the call quality is indeed pretty decent. In case you have not tried Skype 4.0 yet, you can download it from here. Downloading Skype 4.0 is free of charge, internet calls (both voice and video) are free of cost too (except your ISP charges). The local and international calls attract minimal charge which you can pay monthly or using the Skype Pay As You Go scheme.

If you have used Skype 4.0, don't forget to give me the feedback. I would really like to hear from you.

I used Skype a long time ago, and just started using it again on the day this blog was posted. Quite pleased with the way it handles the conversation, and the streaming video is much clearer than other services than Yahoo. All in all, the Skype team has done a very good job on that piece of software.
