Skype for Mac v7.0 launch.02

Microsoft is releasing the latest version of Skype for Mac today adding support for over a dozen additional languages and performance improvements for users. Beginning with Skype 7.5 for Mac, the communication app will now feature localization for the following languages: Hindi, Turkish, Czech, Ukrainian, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, Indonesian, Catalan, Croatian, Slovak, Vietnamese, Thai and Malay

Microsoft also says the latest version of Skype addresses performance issues including “significantly reduced CPU consumption” when using animated characters during chat. Mac users should also see fewer issues related to OS X’s App Nap feature, which could prevent Skype from reconnecting when used in the background.

Skype 7.5 for Mac is available as a free download from Microsoft, and most users should see the update automatically. The latest version requires OS X 10.9 Mavericks or higher.
