New Skype for Mac Enables Group Video Calling

The latest Skype 5.0 is now available for Mac today in beta, introducing a revamped look and feel that simplifies navigation and supports group video calling.

The Skype app has been brought together in one window for ease-of-use, and the Mac address book has been integrated, making it possible for users to call, IM and SMS their contacts when they are online or offline.

The new Skype for Mac also offers the group video calling, which allows users to make video calls with more than two people at a time as long as all participants are on the new Mac beta or Skype for Windows 5.0.

The new Skype for Mac also includes the following new features:

* New call control bar ? Hang up, mute and more from a mini Skype toolbar that sits on top of any web pages, documents or photos that are open
* Search chat content to easily navigate past conversations
* Offline IM so that users can send and receive instant messages even if the recipient is offline
* Personalise contacts via user profiles
* Quickly rejoin calls if the Internet connection fails momentarily
* Floating Contacts Monitor to see a users' online contacts and contact groups
