Skype Launches Version 5 for Mac

By February 1, 2011

Follow me on:

Skype 5 for Mac, which was so far in Beta, is now officially launched. As the Skype blog says, they have been listening to the feedback from users and have brought improvements to the app. What people have complained most about is the size of the interface, and Skype says they have compressed things.

Skype 5 for Mac, besides carrying basic Skype stuff, is mainly characterized by group video calling. Among other features, as tagged by Skype, are an easy interface, effortless search, SMS, screen sharing, online numbers, file sahring etc.

However, many users don't seem to be thrilled about the product. First, it is not free. You get to try it for a week, then you have to pay. Then, back in October last year, when Skype 5 for Windows was launched, the buzzword was Facebook integration, which was expected with the Mac version as well. It didn't come. Moreover, read the Skype Mac blog to have a breeze of what complainers are saying in comments. You can download the app from there.
