After the release of Skype 5.5 for Windows, featuring deep Facebook integration, the company has just launhced a new Mac version of its voice and video calling software.
Skype 5.2 for Mac can not only do group video calls but also share their screens during such calls. “Screen sharing is a premium feature that lets you show presentations, photos and more by sharing your computer screen with everyone on the call. You stay in control of what they see.”
Call control bar – with video enables you to avoid “switch back to full-screen Skype to carry on a video call.” Just minimize Skype and you can still see the person you’re talking to – while you also work on your computer. In short, it lets you see the person you’re talking to as well as being able to hang up or mute the conversation even when you’re in a different program.
Finally, Skype has made it easier to find your most active conversations under ‘Recents’ in the sidebar, and added a history section where users can see those that are less active.
Such subscriptions cost between $4.49 and $8.99 per month. You can also get a day pass for $4.99 if you only use the product occasionally.
