Skype 2.2 Beta for Linux
Skype 2.2 Beta for Linux, codenamed ‘Access Granted’, is here and brings Skype Access to our Linux users. Skype Access lets you connect to over 500,000 WiFi hotspots worldwide using your Skype Credit.
We’ve improved audio and video quality and reliability, and have addressed the ‘multiple calls’ scenario: you can now receive a second call while a call is ongoing; you can hold and answer it or join the two calls into a conference call.
Finally we fixed a number of problems identified by our internal and external users:
- Ubuntu users experienced PulseAudio issues with the latest versions
- KDE users experienced graphic issues using the default Oxygen style
- and many more – check our release notes
Don’t forget to read the known issues list and to use the forum for the most critical issues you may encounter trying this new release.
