Skype 7.13 for Mac: now supports OS X El Capitan

Today we’re pleased to release Skype 7.13 for Mac. In this release, we focused on updating Skype to make sure the app supports Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan. We’ve also added support to the new Split View mode in El Capitan, which helps you with multitasking, such as planning a trip with a group of friends on Skype while browsing travel sites on the side. If you’ve already upgraded to OS X El Capitan, please download Skype for Mac today to continue to enjoy the best Skype experience.

We’ve also made it easier to automatically add friends that are also using Skype. Just go to Contacts and click Add Contacts. There you’ll see an option to automatically add people you know in your Mac or other address books. You can also verify your mobile number so that people who have it can easily find you on Skype.
