Skype for Mac

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Web Apps, Windows


There is a surprise release by Skype today! The next major release of Skype 2.0 for Mac is now available for download at Skype. Presumably, there is not much of introduction about Skype here, as there are tonnes of information available.

However, what’s new about Skype 2.0 for Mac? Finally, Macintosh users can use of Skype to make video calls to any other Skype users. I suppose, that is that functionality plays the major role in the new version release.


  • * Make video calls to anyone on Skype, no matter what kind of computer they are using.
  • * Say hello, smile, or even wave with anyone, anywhere in the world on Skype.
  • * Great quality video that just works.
  • * All for free of course.

System Requirement

  • * Mac computer with G4 800 Mhz processor or faster
  • * Mac OS X v10.3.9 Panther or newer
  • * 512 MB RAM
  • * 40 MB free disk space
  • * Microphone
  • * Webcam: Drivers for the Philips and Logitech webcams can be downloaded from http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/.
  • * Internet connection.

Basically, that’s good news for Macintosh users!

Skype for Mac can be downloaded here. Builds for other platforms are also available, i.e. Linux or Windows.
