Skype is out with a beta (“experienced users only”) client for Mac OS X. While several of the new features play catch-up to the Windows app, Mac users do get one exclusive… Call Transfer. TechCrunch tried it out and had this to say:
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.
- 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
