Skype has released a new version of its video calling application for Mac OS X. Version 5.2 includes features such as group video calls (already present in the earlier version) as well as new screen sharing for its premium members.
Even though screen sharing was already present in one-on-one calls, this version lets you show documents, presentations and more to a group. This feature will be attractive to business users who work remotely with colleagues and clients.
Besides group calling and screen sharing, the new Mac version of Skype has a control bar that lets you mute or hang up a call if you have switched to another application. Skype also makes it easier to find recent conversations and added a new History section to find those contacts that use Skype infrequently.
You can download Skype 5.2 for the mac now from Skype’s website.
