Skype for Mac 220.127.116.111
The whole world can talk for free with this p2p telephony software.
Skype allows users to communicate with peers by voice using a microphone, video by using a webcam, and instant messaging over the Internet. Phone calls may be placed to recipients on the traditional telephone networks. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free of charge, while calls to landline telephones and mobile phones are charged via a debit-based user account system. Skype has also become popular for its additional features, including file transfer, and videoconferencing.
Microsoft and Facebook Account Integration
Sign up and sign-in is easier than ever. You can now sign into Skype using your Microsoft or Facebook account - there's no need to create a new Skype account. This makes it even easier to connect with friends on Skype without having to set up another account.
IM friends on Messenger
Now you can instant message your Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook.com contacts via Skype all in one place. If you use a Microsoft account today, merging your accounts is easy - just sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account.
Calling with Messenger friends is coming soon
We're working on polishing a feature which will enable audio and video calls to Windows Live Messenger customers using Skype desktop clients. The feature will be available in coming weeks.
Open Chats in Multiple Windows
We hear your feedback! With this release we've added support to open chats in multiple windows.
Retina Display Support
We also added another feature you've asked for - support Retina display. Now you can take full advantage of improved usability and of higher resolution screens
See a slideshow of other participants in a group call when you are the current speaker
When you are the current speaker in a group call, you will see a slideshow of other participants in the call monitor. When you are the current speaker in a group call and someone else is screen sharing, you will see a slideshow of the other participants in the main call view.
New In-Call DTMF dial pad
We have introduced a new in-call dial pad for generating DTMF tones. When you press the dial pad in the call toolbar while you are in a call with a phone number, the in-call dial pad will be displayed in the call screen.
Please update to the latest version of Skype for Mac and leave us feedback by visiting our Support Network or by reporting issues on our public issue tracker.
Infinite chat scrolling
We have introduced a new way of loading history. Each time you scroll upward, more and more messages will be loaded from history. Scrolling is motion sensitive, the faster you scroll the more messages load. To jump back in history. Ctrl + click anywhere (or right click) in the chat and select “Jump back “ and select the period you want to jump back to. We have also separated dates from the timestamps and created date sections instead to make it more visible in the chat. Skype will index all chat history when you first login and consume less resources after indexing completion.
Improved find within the chat
We have redesigned the find functionality to be part of the chat view, instead of opening in a separate window. You can easily navigate between results and see the total number of matches in the chat. Current match is highlighted in yellow. You can also search strings by using “Starts with” or “Contains” option. Recent searches are stored so that you can reuse them in the future.
Custom Chat Styles removal
We have removed custom chat styles to ensure consistency across our clients. If you prefer a more compact layout for your chat, you can go to preferences > messaging > “use compact chat style”
Improved send and receive contacts
We have redesigned the way contacts are sent and received by users. When multiple contacts are sent, the recipient will see an expandable list in the conversation and can either add them all at once or add them one by one. If the received contact is already in the contacts list, or is blocked, the recipient will see the relevant status.
Improved file transfer
We have improved file transfer allowing users to reaccept the file when receiving. File transfer will remain active till the sender cancels it.
Support for Simplified Chinese
- We have added language support for Simplified Chinese.
- Supported Operating System
- OS X 10.6 or later is required. Leopard (OS X 10.5) users can continue to use Skype 6.3 for Mac.
Today we’re releasing Skype for Mac 6.14. We’ve made some changes to refine the UI and to improve compatibility with OS X Mavericks.
Did you know that you can turn off all notifications, such as new message sounds, by setting your status to Do Not Disturb? This feature has been in Skype for years, but sometimes it can be easy to forget that you’re in this mode so we’ve added a warning to the Notifications preference pane to remind you why you aren’t getting notifications in this state.
You’ve always been able to adjust the size of text in the conversation pane, but text you typed into a conversation would remain the same. We’ve amended this so that now the two text sizes will be updated at the same time. Just choose “Make Text Bigger” from the View menu.
We’ve also fixed a number of reported bugs, including sound output from Skype to Bluetooth headphones and speakers caused by a change in the way that OS X reported available devices, and mach port leak on Mavericks which could lead to slowness and, in some cases, kernel panics.
We hope you enjoy this update. Download Skype for Mac 6.14 today, give it a try, and let us know what you think. To share your feedback or to get the latest news and tips, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and join us on the Skype Community.
