Skype for Mac

According to the report by Villu Arak, Skype 2.7 for Mac Beta is now out for the public. There are several new features in this beta release – so do check them out!

  1. * Group contacts – organize your contacts into as many groups as you need.
  2. * See your Apple Address Book contacts in Skype – easily call or SMS anyone who has a phone number in their address-book profile.
  3. * Create and manage public chats by clicking on Chats in the menu bar and choosing Start Public Chat.
  4. * Auto Redial for busy or unconnected calls. When your call hits the busy signal, Skype will give you the option of automatic redial every two minutes until the call goes through.
  5. * Easy sound-level controls – when you need to tweak the sound level during a call, use a simple slider in the call window
  6. * Overhauled file transfer – wearing a more fashionable jacket, file-transfer now looks elegant and acts even nicer, especially when receiving many files at once.

Indeed, this version is worthwhile trying out. However, it is vital to note that this release is still labelled as “beta“, hence it is advised not to install this on production machines.
