Skype For Mac 2.6 with Mac-Exclusive Feature

Skype for Mac 2.6 was released today and includes a number of “catch up” features previously available only for Windows Skype users. Among them are a chat type indicator (knowing when your contacts are writing messages), Skype Prime integration and automatic updates.

But the coolest feature is Mac-only at this point, Call Transfer. When you are on a Skype call, you can transfer it to another Skype user on your contact list. It is available under the “more” button during an ongoing call.

It appears that the receiving user must also be using Mac version 2.6, so this feature isn’t that useful yet. Still, its nice to see Skype releasing a new feature for the Mac crowd first.
