Soon after Microsoft has acquired Skype and the two have shaken hands, the 5.6 version of Skype’s Windows product has been released. This update is meant to remove the Google’s toolbar since Skype is now officially a part of Microsoft.
It seems that Microsoft is more than content with the acquisition it has made. In this matters, Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer has stated that:
“Skype is a phenomenal product and brand that is loved by hundreds of millions of people around the world. We look forward to working with the Skype team to create new ways for people to stay connected to family, friends, clients and colleagues – anytime, anywhere.”
As a result of this acquisition Microsoft has made, Skype has now come with this release of the Skype 5.6 version for its Windows product. Windows Skype 7.5 app is also expected to be released in the next weeks as Microsoft has already introduced the Skype application at the MIX event this year.
Several enhancements related to the developer have also been introduced in Windows Phone Mango 7.5 by Joe Belfiore who stated that “we’re excited to see Skype come to the platform this fall when all these additional enhancements are available”.
