Microsoft just recently has updated their Skype application to version 6 for the mac, which adds Retina display support and also the option to sign into Skype with the use of your Facebook login. This gets rid of the need to sign up for a Skype account. And last year Skype had integrated the option to use Facebook’s chat system and to make video calls in it’s application.
Microsoft and Facebook Account Integration
Sign up and sign-in is easier than ever. You can now sign into Skype using your Microsoft or Facebook account – there’s no need to create a new Skype account. This makes it even easier to connect with friends on Skype without having to set up another account.
IM friends on Messenger
Now you can instant message your Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook.com contacts via Skype all in one place. If you use a Microsoft account today, merging your accounts is easy – just sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account.
Calling with Messenger friends is coming soon
We’re working on polishing a feature which will enable audio and video calls to Windows Live Messenger customers using Skype desktop clients. The feature will be available in coming weeks.
Open Chats in Multiple Windows
We hear your feedback! With this release we’ve added support to open chats in multiple windows.
Retina Display Support
We also added another feature you’ve asked for – support Retina display. Now you can take full advantage of improved usability and of higher resolution screens.
Skype for the Mac is now available for a free download from Skype.com currently.
