Aplicativo essencial para quem utiliza video conferencia. O cliente Linux não deixa NADA a dever para outros SO's. Muito bonito e funcional e perfeito no Mint 19.

Skype is fine, but this version kept reloading the page and then crashing for me! The Flatpak version worked fine so I'm using that.

Skype on Linux really has no right to take up the kind of space that it does. It's a shame to see Microsoft not care about Linux or their own software.

What even happened to you, Microsoft? You took something that was big back then and you made it bad. Let's just hope you don't try to buy out Discord.

Tried to call today with a skype app, but turns out that it requires the configuration change to allow microphone usage, that does not exist at all, and automatically ends the call. Screen sharing does not work too with or without a call.

Works great in Ubuntu. Not sure what the negative reviews are for. This is a free program!

Microsoft Skype clearly tries to discredit Linux, not working on a functional version. A pity and a shame.

Only one phone number added to Skype and saved nowhere and i found that number as suggestion on contacts update in Amazon login. Thats a serious breach of privacy. Skype is of MS and MS is a S##T Spy and sells/shares our private data to others. I just uninstalling Skype. I want my personal and private life safe and peaceful.

The legacy edition performed better IMO. But people got it right this time, Skype doesn't do it anymore. Chances are you're better off with Discord, which receives updates every so often. The ONLY reason I can think of in order to justify installing Skype nowadays is because it's the only app that lets you send SMS. Screen sharing no longer works. Hell it isn't even an option anymore. Anyways, VNC Viewer does a much better job than Skype, so there's that.

Recently Microsoft updated their Skype platform (on everything but Linux). This has caused Linux Skype users to not be able to place calls or use the service in general. With Skype (Microsoft) dumping Linux users, you might also want to return the favor.

Webcam video is broken, there seems to be no interest from MS to resolve the issue. ONLY Skype has issues with the webcam so is not a hardware issue. Time to move on and use Discord
