Skype for Mac 2.0 in beta

Skype has released the beta version of its popular communications software, Skype for Mac 2.0 beta, which gives any Mac user with an Internet connection the ability to make free video calls to anyone else on Skype regardless of whether they use the Windows or Mac platform, delivering cross platform support to its international community of more than 113 million users. Mac users can now enjoy one-on-one video calls, viewed within the Skype window or on the full computer screen. Skype video for Mac also includes a small window for users to view how they appear to the person they are calling. In order to make video calls Skype for Mac OS X 2.0 requires a Mac with Mac OS X v10.3.9 Panther or newer and a G4/G5/Intel-based Mac running at a minimum of 800MHz. In addition to the release of Skype for Mac OS X 2.0, Skype announced today the release of Skype for Mac OS X 1.5 Gold, a final version of its audio calling solution for Mac users.
