Skype has released a new beta for Mac users today that brings an enhanced call UI and more features. Call quality and stabilization improvements have also been introduced.

Today, we’re pleased to announce an update to Skype for Mac with the launch of Skype 5.5 for Mac Beta. This update includes improved Call UI, the ability to accept incoming calls with or without video and improvements in call quality and stabilization. The improved discoverability of Skype’s Call allows Mac users to easily mute their microphone, send video, share their screen, send files and even add more people during a call.

We would like to encourage our most frequent users to try this build and provide feedback on the new call functionality – your ongoing feedback plays a significant role in helping us drive continuous product improvement.

Users can download the Skype 5.5 beta for Mac [download link] and give the app a test run. Let us know what you think in the comments!
