    Mine say 6.20.0.104 and using the update tab under tools in skype...says I have the latest version all ready. WTH, why can't they (MS) fix this?

    So I had to do it the old fashioned way, but I'm running the latest version now.

    Bassfisher6522 let me know about Skypes latest release. A new desktop version of skype. It's a bit like the old Metro skype and normal desktop skype mixed together. See the blog below:

    Skype seems to have been updated to 7.0.0.102 although as of yet I haven't seen any notification or changelog. Check your updates tab found under the Help button.

    It's useless to use that updates tab that's found under the Help tab......it always and I mean always says I have the latest version. As it does right now. The only way for me to get the latest update is to go to skype's website and re-download the entire software again. For what ever reason it's always been this way for me...not matter what OS I'm using, or if I've just did a clean install....that update tab always says I have the latest version...bunch of horse hockey!!!!!

    In your opinion you mean... I tried the update tab yesterday and it said there was a new update. This was after learning Randy was running a later version so it does work but I'll agree not always.
