Skype Releases 'Skype for Mac 7.0' With a New Design for Chat and Calling

Skype has announced the release of Skype for Mac 7.0 featuring a design refresh of the chat and calling experience.

Today we’re excited to announce Skype for Mac 7.0 as well as the preview for the new Skype for Windows – both of which have been redesigned to make it easier to chat and share. If you’re already using Skype on mobile, you’ll recognize some of these changes. We’ve made the Skype experience consistent whether you are using your mobile device or your desktop PC. Now, you’ll see thumbnail pictures of your contacts, a new bubble-style chat design, and consistent icons for chat, video calls and audio calls.

It'd be fantastic if Skype actually worked. Too many times, can't connect. Tested with laptop to laptop, iPhone to laptop, iPhone to iPhone, and it's just unreliable. Whatever Microsoft has done has made it worse.
