Just in time for Apple’s official release of OS X El Capitan, Microsoft is out with a new version of Skype with features only available on the new operating system. Available in Skype 7.13 for Mac, the messaging and video chatting app now supports Apple’s new Split View feature for running Skype side-by-side with another full screen app.

Oct 01, 2015 Microsoft says that the Skype 7.13 for Mac app may lag on the new OS X El Capitan, when users try to switch from a conversation which has a lot of participants. There is no workaround for it yet, but Microsoft says it is working to resolve then issue,. Apr 14, 2017 I made a wrong decision to install Sierra (earlier it was El Capitan). The overall system got (negative) performance hit but I know I have to live with it. However, I have serious issue while running Skype. After starting up it starts taking memory and in few minutes it reaches beyond 2 GB. Skype for Business on Mac runs on OS X El Capitan or later versions. What does Skype for Business on Mac include? Skype for Business on Mac has Presence status, Instant Messaging (IM), making/receiving phone calls, Meetings (Meet Now and Scheduled Skype Meetings), video calling. Skype for Business on Mac - available with Mac OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra; Lync for Mac 2011 - available with Mac OS X Yosemite; Skype for Business mobile clients can be installed by visiting your App Store; Note: Windows users, if you are running Office 2010 or earlier, you need to upgrade to Office 2013 to use Skype for Business.
Split View on Skype even works during video calls when running another app next to it. Because Skype already had its own picture-in-picture feature, users may want to disable this to avoid seeing double video streams when using the app next to Skype.
Aside from El Capitan support and features, Skype says it has improved how you add contacts as well:

We’ve also made it easier to automatically add friends that are also using Skype. Just go to Contacts and click Add Contacts. There you’ll see an option to automatically add people you know in your Mac or other address books. You can also verify your mobile number so that people who have it can easily find you on Skype.
Skype 7.13 also includes a fix for an issue that caused Skype to crash, although Microsoft says the El Capitan update may “experience slow performance when switching to a conversation with large number of participants when running Skype” on OS X 10.11.
The latest version requires OS X Mavericks or later; Split View requires OS X El Capitan. You can grab Skype for Mac here.
