Upgraded Skype version needed to continue using Skypecasts
Our engineers have made Skypecasts sound better than ever before. And we want to make sure you enjoy them more than ever before.
Which is why we’re asking users to upgrade their Skype software. Windows users should download Skype for Windows 3.2 or later, and Mac users should run at least Skype 2.6 for Mac.
Why do all that? As of June 13, older versions will simply no longer be compatible with Skypecasts. Sounds like a bummer, but it’s actually a good thing. The whole Skypecast experience will be better. And upgrading — even just for the hell of it — should make everyone feel good and fashionable anyway..
Update: We’ve found that software-version recognition in the skypecast.com directory needs better glasses. When you are in the directory and click to join a Skypecast, Skype 2.6 for Mac won’t be recognized as such and will be interpreted as an older version. We’re working to fix this bug
