On Wednesday, Skype updated its popular instant messaging, VoIP, and video calling application for the Mac OS X platform to version 7.1 with official support for OS X Yosemite 10.10, Apple's latest and greatest desktop operating system for Mac machines.

OS X Yosemite gives the operating system a brand new look in terms of the operating system's user interface by taking advantage of blurs, flatter colors, and improved fonts for retina display Macs. Skype 7.1 takes full advantage of these features to not only look good on OS X Yosemite 10.10, but also to be as stable and zippy as possible.

In addition, the update enhances the group conversation feature, making it easier than ever before for a user to copy links in a group conversation, or to leave a group conversation that they just don't want to be a part of.

If you're an existing user of Skype for Mac OS X, then you can open the application and go to Skype > Check for Updates to find and download this update. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Skype for Mac OS X manually from this link.
