Skype for Mac and Windows has just received an update to version 6.0 with an alternative sign in and extended Microsoft-integration in tow. A Windows 8 and RT-specific version of Skype will be coming in a few days, but current Mac and Windows users are getting an update now.
Now you’re able to log in “without” a Skype ID and opt for using a Microsoft Live ID or a Facebook one instead. There’s also Retina support for Mac, visual changes and more.
Signing in with a Microsoft account will let users chat with their contacts from Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook.com directly from Skype. The Skype team is also working to bring video calling between Skype and Windows Live Messenger contacts and says the feature will be available in the coming weeks.
The user interface has been refreshed and “flattened” for a less cluttered look. The “currently online” account has been removed too. On the Mac side of things there’s an option for multiple windows for individual chats.
You can downlaod the latest version of Skype, by following the source link, and for more info hit the Check for updates button (listed under Help in the app itself).
