Skype Mac Features

I have used Skype for PC and Mac and there are nearly not the same about of features for the Mac as for the PC.  Maybe I am missing it.  Where can I download Skype apps?

Re : Skype Mac Features

I Have downloaded Skype Version 5.5.0.2340 but it says " "You can't open the application "Skype" because it is not supported on this architecture, and has a crossed out Icon in the Finder 

I have Powerbook G4, syst 10.5.8 PowerPC (not Intel), 1.33mhz, 2 gig ram, 320 gig HD,

The old software worked OK, can I still use Skype on my PB G4?

Re : Skype Mac Features

Hi,

 

Version 5.x is Intel only whereas your G4 is running a PowerPC processor.

 

Skype 2.8.0.866 version should work fine as it's UB (Universal Binary).

Downloadable from http://mac.oldapps.com/skype.php
