Today we have released a new version of Skype for Mac. In this release, we have worked on improving the quality of the overall user experiences.
New features and improvements in Skype 6.3 for Mac include:
- See a slideshow of other participants in a group call when you are the current speaker
- New In-Call DTMF dial pad
See a slideshow of other participants in a group call when you are the current speaker
When you are the current speaker in a group call, you will see a slideshow of other participants in the call monitor. When you are the current speaker in a group call and someone else is screen sharing, you will see a slideshow of the other participants in the main call view.
New In-Call DTMF dial pad
We have introduced a new in-call dial pad for generating DTMF tones. When you press the dial pad in the call toolbar while you are in a call with a phone number, the in-call dial pad will be displayed in the call screen.
