Skype For Mac

I noticed Tom Keating’s blog today saying that the new version of Skype for the Mac has been releases. The official release is 1.4.0.35. And no, I am not sure why the new release number looks more like an IP address than a version number.
Here are some of the new features in this new release:

  • Pause iTunes automatically when you get a call
  • Express yourself with mood messages
  • Forward calls to other Skype accounts or regular phones
  • Simply drag and drop contacts to add them to chats and calls
  • Support for enhanced notifications with Growl
  • Auto-pause/auto-resume iTunes for in-bound and out-bound voice calls
  • Fast call set-up — drag and drop contacts to add them to chats and calls.
  • The Mac OS X version is now available in Japanese
  • Notifications – Skype notifies users of new messages and when users come on- and off-line, along with an overview of available Skype services.
What I like about Skype is the company’s support for as many operating systems as possible from PDA to Mac. The broad availability of this platform is also a reason why it will be hard to unseat Skype with a different free VoIP offering – unless you have as many variants as Skype does.
