Both the main Skype window and chat drawer have been redesigned to be more efficient and easier to use. The new resizable chat drawer makes sorting, adding and removing chats straightforward through a simple drag and drop. Skype has made organizing and adding contacts effortless through improved integration with Apples Address Book and Microsoft En-tourage. Additionally, Skypes quickfilter search function simplifies finding contacts within the Skype contact list. Skype is bringing the Mac version to an even broader global audience with support for seven new languages, including French, German and Spanish.
In addition to the new software release, Skype has announced the availability of the first Skype for Mac starter packs. The packs contain everything needed to get started with Skype for Mac, a USB stereo headset with microphone complete with its own specially-designed carrying case and a voucher for free SkypeOut minutes to call landline or mobile numbers worldwide. Skypes online hardware store also stocks a wide array of Mac-compatible Skype accessories including Skype Certified headsets and USB phones.
