Video calling on Skype for Linux Alpha

We launched Skype for Linux Alpha a few months ago but we were missing a key feature—video calling. Today, we’re pleased to begin the rollout of one-to-one video calling on Skype for Linux Alpha.

Video calling on Skype for Linux Alpha

As we’re still in Alpha, we’re releasing the feature slowly so, for the time being, it will only work on one-to-one video calls between Skype for Linux Alpha clients. We’ll be enabling other Skype platforms to receive calls from Skype for Linux Alpha in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Please continue to help by providing feedback on your video calls, specifically how you find video call quality. Please head over to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or the Skype Community. We’re listening!
