Skype 2.5 is out. You can get it from the download page here.
I got it...its just like the beta (which had no stability issues for me)...skype 3 for windows now...we're always a step behind!
i have the skype 2.5 beta, but when i go press update, it does nothing....how do i update to the non-beta ? i guess just erase the beta & re-install the new one ??
The update isn't available through the Skype application's menu yet, but you can use the link to download the thing and replace the application.
I just installed it. It looks like the status icons are missing from the status menu. Other than that everything looks pretty similar to the 2.0 version.
love skype.. running the beta at the mo, must d/l the stable now... (never had issues with the beta though)
sms support, yay.
"If you havent yet downloaded the newest version of Skype for Mac, take a deep breath and then download it now. Since Beta weve fixed many bugs and made it easier to use. You can now send SMS straight from the History menu or see when your voicemail subscription expires in the My Account area. There are numerous other improvements that happened behind the scenes but make using Skype for Mac more pleasant than ever before.
Make a Video call in this version, and you will notice we have introduced a new video codec that significantly improves the quality of video calling. Power users can take this one step further, tweaking some settings. See Skype Garage for more if youre brave. (Requires changing some settings to Skypes xml files to give you near HD quality Video calls)
Weve even added a nifty little birthday reminder feature, to help you impress your Skype contacts (and secure an invitation to the ). We have also introduced clickable mood messages and a few new emoticons. Download and enjoy."
so what differences are there now between mac and pc skype? why is it 2.5 vs 3?
im glad to see we have caught up, thanks skype
dunno if there is even any differences anymore! most if not all features are on both
I'm not sure. What does their website say was added to version 3?
Cybix- I just downloaded Skype and subscribed to their Unlimited Plan. Works great. However, I had some questions so viewed the Forums and could not find all my answers so joined the Forums and wanted to ask a question. Forums there seem to be locked down since I keep getting an error. I have sent email to the Forum Support without a response. But anyways, maybe you can answer this one or somebody here can. I have Skype 2.5 on my MBP and 3.0 on my wife Windoze machine. We basically share the account since mainly she or I will be calling when I am on the road in Japan or somewhere. Can she be on at the same time as I or is there a need for a second account? Thanks!!
I've found that the video is smoother on my sawtooth, even though my slow computer isn't supported.
Other than that, I can't really see any difference.
Got it. Seems to work fine so far.
Seems OK for me too (15'' 1.5 Ghz PB, 1Gb ram, 10.3.9), except for one small thing: when I click on the small clock on the top right, I can no longer resize the history columns, meaning that I can not see the duration of previous calls. It seems to be a bug, although a very minor one, and I am sure it will be fixed. Other than that, 2.5 all the way
I downloaded and ran skype for windows last night. It has so many more features than the mac version. Probably the most important feature is the ability to group contacts and hide/show them. At least I haven't been able to find this on the mac version.
I really don't see a difference between version 2.5 for Windows and 2.5 for Mac on the website but the version 3.0 beta has more, including the groups.
Ah. So I'm guessing (hoping) the mac version will get groups in v3.
I just downloaded, and used the SMS function for the first time (it may have been there in earlier versions, and I just didn't see it). Very nice, and FAST.
What phone handsets are you guys using with Skype?
Logitech USB headset/mic combo. Great sound.
I've also got a Logitech USB headset--the 350--and it sounds great.
