Skype have released their latest Skype 4.1 Beta today, which adds screen sharing capabilities.

skypescreenshareIt’s not going to instantly replace professional webinar solutions as it’s currently view only and at the moment only works between two users – a host and a guest viewer. You can easily switch roles and it opens interesting possibilities for Skype to add functionality in the future.

Despite it’s limitations it’s still a cute addition with the option of sharing your full screen or a resizable section of the screen.

A couple of old features have been reintroduced – Birthday reminders and the ability to send contacts to other Skype users. You can also import new contacts from Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL and LinkedIn.

Skype 4.1 Beta can be downloaded from the Skype website.
