Skype Software S.a.r.l has announced the release of Skype 5.1 for Mac OS X, an update to its popular cross-platform chatting application. Mac users are also invited to participate in a contest where they can win an iPad 2, a MacBook Air, an Apple TV and several other products.
“Today we have released Skype 5.1 for Mac,” writes Beom Soo Park in a March 24 post.
Park mentions the key updates from this release, noting that participants in group calls can now identify active speakers by selecting recently called numbers stored in the dial pad.
Issues with the iSight Firewire webcam detection have been addressed, Park adds, while users can now provide the company with their call quality feedback after a call ends.
