Skypes no longer allowing me join group calls and use IM within group purposes.

Skypes no longer allowing me join group calls and use IM within group purposes.

 

The error message I get when trying to type in the IM box is:

 

"This is a legacy conversation from an old Skype client. Sending messages is not supported."

 

And this is highlighted in a grey colour?

 

Can anyone help at all? My version of Skype is: 6.7.0.373

You are using old version of Skype, please download the latest 6.19.

Also, make sure your OS X is updated, you should have 10.9.4.

Still doesn't work. I can't even see the group chats I'm added into now also.

You need to upgrade Skype, the latest version is 6.19. You can get it from skype.com/downloads
