Skift Take

Besides better sound, Skype's new program will automatically adjust users' Internet connection from 3G to Wi-Fi to hopefully smooth Internet hiccups that cause stalled video chats.

Skype has a new audio codec in the works. For users of the service, which is pretty formidable already when it comes to video and audio calls over the internet, it has one significant improvement. Crystal clear, “CD quality” sound.
