Skype 5.6 for Mac

Today, we are pleased to announce the release of Skype 5.6 for Mac. Please download the latest Skype for Mac to ensure you're receiving the best quality from Skype on your Mac.

New features and improvements in Skype 5.6 for Mac include:

  • Automatic Updates
  • Improved UI for group video calling
  • New full screen mode in OS X Lion
  • Ability to delete conversations
  • Ability to disable Audio Gain Control

Automatic Updates

Skype will now automatically upgrade to newer versions when minor and critical updates are released. This will keep you on the cutting edge with Skype's newest features.

UI improvement in group video calling

Switch between dynamic mode and non-dynamic mode in group video calls with 5 or more participants. With dynamic mode on, the person who is speaking is automatically moved to the top of the screen.

Support for full screen mode in OS X Lion

Now, you can take advantage of full screen mode in Skype. This feature eliminates distractions from the Dock and Menu bars, while enhancing your interaction with your loved ones.

Ability to delete conversations

Delete messages within a conversation, as well as remove conversations from the sidebar and your history.

Ability to disable Audio Gain Control from Preferences

Disable the automatic adjustment of your microphone setting in your preferences in order to reduce the background noise during conference calls.

Nope, not seen any and I've been running it for the past hour.

Not really, just subtle upgrades that aren't really necessary.

I wish I could control the volume of a call. This is probably about my only gripe with the software right now.

Every time I launch Skype v5.6 I'm being logged out on Facebook in Safari (v5.2). :s
