Should I use a Skype beta release?

Beta releases contain our newest features, and are a great way to try out new versions of our software before they are officially released. It's also a great way for us to get feedback from people on what they think about our software.

We carry out extensive testing to ensure that beta releases work as expected, and are confident you won't have serious problems using them. However, please remember that beta releases are work in progress, and may not work as well as official releases.

We understand that some people may not wish to use beta software. If you would prefer to use the latest official release of Skype, you can find it here.
