Microsoft is developing a new-different version of Skype for small level entrepreneurs and freelancers. The company is planning to preview the new version of Skype soon as a desktop client in the United States. The software giant’s “Skype Professional Account” includes integrated Skype calls, payments, and calendar meetings. This version of the Skype would be particularly beneficial for the freelancers who might use Skype for providing consultancy, tutorials and training sessions.
The new version of the software would enable the small business owners and freelancers to accept payments and book meetings on the same platform, instead of using third-party options or alternatives.

Skype Professional Account provides the power to do all the possible things needed to be done for conducting a business with just one app. Booking and giving lessons, doing transactions, scheduling meetings all could be done effortlessly from one place. The new version has also got a profile page for assisting in improving the online existence and a dedicated website for the details of one’s business. The clients of ones’ business would be able to see relevant information like business hours and offerings.
This cannot be said with clarity that whether the software giant intends to offer this professional Skype version as a free service once it gets done with the preview. The users who feel like testing it can sign-up at Microsoft’s Skype homepage and try the new version.
