Update at 03rd of Mary 18:41:
Apparently during today Skype has posted the Beta straight on their website. Go get it by clicking here. The version pointed to earlier today is indeed the same ! Here’s a list of the great new features:
– Call normal phones easily from Skype with our new SkypeOut Easy Dialing and new ways to pay.
– Easily keep in touch with friends and family by using Shared Groups to share contact details and introduce friends.
– Create a social space for your group for free with conference calling and group chat.
– Call your Outlook® contacts directly from Skype.
– Send SMS messages to your friends from Skype.
So far I’ve only tested the SMS function in Denmark and the Netherlands with Telia and Vodafone respectively, which worked very well !
Just wanted to point everyone to the new downloadable Skype 2.5 Beta – click here to download. I found it quite difficult to find the link myself, so I thought I’d just go ahead and post it here.
You’ll enjoy the new global SMS feature, and a lot of other things that I haven’t had the chance to check out yet !
