Skype for Mac 6.5 with Better Ways to Share and Call

Today we released a new version of Skype for Mac 6.5, making it easier to share and continuing to improve the quality of your experience.

Video Messaging

We continue to improve video messaging while it’s in preview and encourage you to try it. Video messaging enables you to share life moments with contacts whether they’re on or offline. In this release, we made the experience even simpler by removing title and description in addition to experience optimizations on the back end.

Easier ways to call

You can now paste a number directly into the in call dial pad for easy calling.
