In the old days – like, last year – mobile video chatting was a thing of the future. Now, it’s becoming an altogether commonplace attribute of modern mobile computing.

Skype 5.0 for Mac is taking video chatting to the next level with a beta trial that lets users enjoy group video calling within the popular single-window framework.

At the end of the beta period, a paid subscription plan will be required for users to enjoy the new feature regularly.

The new Skype 5.0 is now available for Macs that gives Skype a more Mac-friendly appearance.

New features – like address Book integration – are also in play, but most are too busy gawking at group video chatting to notice improvements elsewhere.
