Skype 6.7 for Mac

Today we have released a new version of Skype for Mac. We are continually focusing on ease of use. With this release we focused on optimizing your search experience.

Fast, deep search results

Search in Skype for Mac has been completely overhauled. Finding the right conversation is now faster than ever. From the toolbar, just enter a term in the search field and it will return a menu of the most relevant conversations. From the same menu, you can also use the Search Messages action item to explore your complete conversation history. Just double-click on a message to jump directly to it. Finally, adding a contact and calling phone numbers straight from search is more discoverable and easier than ever.

We’re always looking to improve your experience on Skype and pay close attention to your feedback. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook or let us know what you think by posting your thoughts and feedback to the Skype Community.

  1. Come on, still no way to disable this damn Skype Home and go straight to contacts list on startup? How long can it take to add option like that …

  2. Hey Folks,

    I do love skype, it’s incredibly handy, but I do have a few bits and bobs to say…

    1. Agreed with the above. Straight to contact list and last conversation please, I don’t need all the social nonsense in my chat client
    2. What’s with the minimum height? I’ve never seen something so non-user friendly. I have a nice big high-res monitor and I’d like to dump it in one little (and still very readable on small text) corner. Stop limiting me from doing this.
    3. Allow me to merge accounts, and fast. I have 3 (one of which has my msn contacts added) and I’d like to facility to combine these.
    4. Allow better integration with other clients. Skype is a great ‘service’, but I prefer other clients (Trillian) for doing my day to day AND keeping me in sync between my different comms devices (desktop, home desktop, mobile, etc)

    I know this sound overly critical, but I think they’d be well received enhancements over things like ‘better search’
