Microsoft Releases Skype 6.0, With Facebook Integration, Retina Support, and More!

Microsoft released a new update to Skype today, bringing the version to 6.0. The update adds a number of welcome features and enhancements, such as Retina display support, Facebook integration, the ability to open chats in multiple windows, and more.

The update is available immediate through in-app update, as well as for direct download from Microsoft. Full release notes follow.

What’s new:

  • Microsoft and Facebook Account Integration
    Sign up and sign-in is easier than ever. You can now sign into Skype using your Microsoft or Facebook account – there’s no need to create a new Skype account. This makes it even easier to connect with friends on Skype without having to set up another account.
  • IM friends on Messenger
    Now you can instant message your Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook.com contacts via Skype all in one place. If you use a Microsoft account today, merging your accounts is easy – just sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account.
  • Calling with Messenger friends is coming soon
    We’re working on polishing a feature which will enable audio and video calls to Windows Live Messenger customers using Skype desktop clients. The feature will be available in coming weeks.
  • Open Chats in Multiple Windows
    We hear your feedback! With this release we’ve added support to open chats in multiple windows.
  • Retina Display Support
    We also added another feature you’ve asked for – support Retina display. Now you can take full advantage of improved usability and of higher resolution screens.
