Skype 5.3 for Windows update – Removed Skype Extras Manager
We have updated Skype 5.3 for Windows.
With this newly released build we have removed the Extras Manager from Skype and in addition we have made some stability improvements.
Please upgrade your Skype now.
Skype Extras Manager provided access to a number of third party applications like games, fax and call recorders. We stopped the development of Skype Extras on September 2009, because there were only a small number of people using the third party applications through Extras Manager, the next logical step was to remove it from our Windows client.
For those of you interested in continuing to use applications from Skype Extras Manager you can go to visit theSkype Shop, to download an older version of Skype for Windows.
