Skype for Mac 1.5 is here
The new version of Skype for Mac is finally here. Go get Skype for Mac 1.5 beta. We’ve introduced some great new things you can do, brushing up the looks and added new language support for French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch users, with the help of our loyal Mac community. Thanks to everyone who contributed see the credits in the CHANGELOG
The first thing you’ll notice with this new release is the fresh new interface especially for Mac to be faster and easier to use, with exclusive Mac-only features like a detachable call window and resizable chat drawer.
We’ve also made it easier for Mac users to call traditional phones with the SkypeOut easy dialer which means you never again have to remember a country code. Just select the country, enter the local number and hit the Call button. Plus you can now call your existing contacts easily by importing contacts from Apple’s Address Book or Microsoft Entourage and calling them directly with SkypeOut. Finding contacts has never been easier either with Quickfilter – all you need to do is start typing the first few letters in a contact’s name to see all the contacts that match your search immediately.
We’ll be posting more details soon on all of the new features. Download Skype for Mac 1.5 beta here, or if you’re feeling brave – you can try out our Video Preview. But please, let us know what you think.
