Today we are pleased to release Skype 7.8 for Mac. We have redesigned the chat input field to give you quicker access to some well-loved features. Now it only takes one click to start sending photos, files, contacts and video messages. We have also added the ability to paste or drag images directly into the input field, for those moments when context is everything. Don’t forget that taking screenshots on OS X is quick with Command (⌘)-Shift-Control-4. Just press those keys at the same time, select your image and then paste into the input field.
In addition to the new input field, we’ve also fixed some problems. The bigger ones include:
|Messaging||Improved performance when rendering animated GIFs|
|Application||Fixed an issue where chat texts are blurred when the conversation was dragged between displays.|
|Application||Sometimes the app crashes on Macbooks with Force Touch trackpad.|
|Video||Computer stutters when Skype window is minimized during a video call|
We are working hard to make your Skype experience even better. Please download the new Skype for Mac now, give it a try and let us know what you think.
