Skype recently announced Skype for Mac 7.0 as well as a preview for the new Skype for Windows – both of which have been redesigned to make it easier to chat and share.
The Skype experience has been enhanced to be consistent whether you are using your mobile device or your desktop PC. You will now see thumbnail pictures of your contacts, a new bubble-style chat design, and consistent icons for chat, video calls and audio calls.
Here are the things you should try when you download Skype for Mac 7.0 and the preview for the new Skype for Windows.
Improved chat experience
The Skype chat experience has been refreshed with more improvements to the desktop. On Windows, there’s more spacing between contacts and chats, as well as message previews for unread chats, making it even easier to follow conversations.
Improvements were made to other types of file sharing as well. Wen you share file types such as Office documents and PDFs, you’ll see file icons displayed to make it easier to visually scan for and find different files in your chat history.
Chat and call simultaneously with one click
With the new side-by-side design, you can effortlessly multi-task on a voice or video call. On Mac, it only takes one click. Share messages, photos or files for a more active conversation together, without ever leaving your call.
Free group video calls
The free group video calls previously announced work better than ever on the redesigned Skype for Mac and Windows.
Skype is still working relentlessly on several exciting improvements and new features so stay tuned for more great features. In the meantime, download Skype for Mac 7.0 and the new preview for Windows desktop.
