Skype 1.10 is released for Linux


Microsoft just announce the immediate availability of the new version of Skype for Linux, specifically version 1.10, a version that brings important new features.

This version for Linux is light years away from the Windows versionSince it is relatively short on time, however, with this version it has taken an important step forward to look a little more like the version of the Redmond operating system.

The biggest novelty that Skype 1.10 for Linux brings is the inclusion of the video calling function, a function that is still in the experimental phase, since it still gives quite a few errors and has to be polished. However, this first step is very important to be at the Windows level in this program.

Also bug fixes for other versions and old versions of Skype for Linux they are going to stop working. In addition, the stability of the system has been improved a bit.

There is certainly still a long way to go, as we cannot compare this official version of Skype with that of WindowsHowever, it is appreciated that the people of Microsoft are remembering the Linux world.

A few years ago we didn't even have a working version of Skype, as we had to depend on third-party clients and versions of Skype in theory officials that did not work properly. Now at least we already have a more or less functional version that, although it is light years away, the intentions and the base are already good

In fact, the version of this messaging program for Linux is still considered an Alpha version, that is, still considered an experimental version, although it may actually work quite well already.

If you want to download and try Skype Alpha for Linux, you can download the package in version Deb and the package in version RPM, which are already available for download.

    Too bad friend but I think you should update on Linux or Skype, because the current version for Linux is 4.3.

      Version 1.10 in numbers represents the alpha version of a new release of Skype for Linux, better than the current 4.3, which has not been updated for 5 years. Greetings.

    I have it installed in Antergos and I found only one problem with the video call, it is that it automatically calibrates the audio and always at the same value, so with a poor microphone it is heard with a lot of noise.
