Skype for Mac update adds improved screen share, more languages

Skype has pushed out an update to its Mac client that while a relatively minor bump to version 6.9 does bring some handy new features with it. The biggest are support for new languages including Swedish, Finnish and European Portuguese, and improved screen sharing that allows you to share specific windows instead of just your whole desktop. Elsewhere, there's a smattering of smaller features and fixes included:

  • Toolbar search field improvements, including listing phone numbers for Mac contacts
  • Mouse cursor renders as hand over links
  • Bug causing name field to overlap mood message on some contact profiles was fixed
  • Chat messages now always appear

If you're already running Skype on your Mac, click on the Skype menu bar item and hit "Check for Updates." If not, hit up the source link below for more information and direct download links.
