The world's largest internet telephony provider has announced a beta version of Skype for Mac 2.0 which contains long-awaited support for video calls over the Mac platform. At long last, Mac and Windows users can see each other clearly over Skype.
The Mac beta supports one-on-one video calling with a full screen option, to any Mac or non-Mac machine running a version of Skype that supports video chat.
"Our community is made up of both Mac and Windows users. We couldn't be more excited to bring these two groups together, literally face-to-face," said Stefan Oberg, director of product management for Skype. Let's hope he hasn't forgotten the Linux community, which Skype also supports but only up to version 1.3 of their popular client.
The Windows version is currently steaming ahead on version 2.5, whilst the Mac version's official stable release remains at 1.5.
Skype's userbase has grown tremendously since it hit the internet in 2003, with now more than 113 million users.
