Voice and video chat software Skype gets an update today and in perfect timing for Valentine’s Day Microsoft has unveiled a new feature which allows users of the popular communication platform to give the gift of call time to their loved ones – How romantic!
Skype version 6.2 for both Windows PC and Apple Mac will introduce ‘eGifting’ which instead of a physical gift card allows us to buy Skype credits on behalf of another and have them loaded onto their account instantly. The popularity of the Skype card as a contemporary gift in modern tech times is ever growing as more and more users are logging into the chat service. The scheme is perfect for parents wanting to check in with their penny-saving student offspring or for far-away mates to stay in touch.
Along with eGifting, Skype v6.2 brings in a redesigned tool bar at the top presenting easy to navigate tabs and of course the routine fixing of several bugs and a solution to an issue which cause the Skype software to shut down randomly.
