Skype 3.1 Beta for Windows with SkypeFind and Typing Indicators

Finally Skype 3.1 Beta for Windows went public. It was a great joy to test it and I am sure it will be welcomed by all users because it finally has a Typing Indicator. And a nice one too!
Of course all parties need to be on 3.1 to see it and it is even more fun when you are in a groups chat with more people. I love the little pencil that is moving or erasing. Yes, it also shows when you erase your text.

New is also “SkypeFind” where you can list your favourite shop, restaurant, club, bank or what ever business you like to share with others.
This is going to be a great database for not only your own area but also for when you travel around the world.
When you are e.g. hungry, log on to Skype, type the country you are in, type a keyword and see which restaurant is near and what the recommendations are.

All the new features in Beta 3.1 are nicely explained in Skype’s Blog. Enjoy but remember it is a public Beta version! Downlaod here.
