Instant Action on the Skype for Mac Beta Issue

Last evening I attended a local event for bloggers. I would get into conversations about Skype 3.2 beta and it turned out most of the attendees had Macs and complained about how Mac users always had to wait longer to get the new features that showed up in Skype for Windows beta first. I simply explained it away as the fact that, with Mac’s higher reliability, the Mac team at Skype had to be more diligent about ensuring smooth operation of their Skype for Mac releases.

This morning I received an email from Skype’s PR agency with the heading: “Skype for Mac 2.6 Beta Brings Call Transfer to Mac Platform First!”

So without further adieu, all you Mac enthusiasts can, via the Skype client itself, perform a true call transfer to your other Skypified colleagues. Download the Skype 2.6 for Mac beta here.

Check out the Release Notes here for complete details. In addition to Call Transfer new features include:

  • Join public chats
  • Chat typing indicator – see when others are writing a message
  • Call any Skype Prime premium services provider and pay with Skype credit>
  • Automatic Updates – get new features and updates without having to go to Skype’s website to download
  • DTMF tones for automatic answering services available also during Skype-to-Skype calls

Now for Windows users, you can take advantage of Call Transfer; however, it involves installation of at least the Free version of Pamela’s new version 3.5 – more coming in a post later this week.

And if you’re on Skype for Windows 3.2 beta client, get the latest update to build 82 here. Release Notes for this build.
