Along with a new name and a new version number the new Skype Linux app also gets a stack of new features, including many long-requested by the VoIP service’s faithful flock of Linux fans.
All the features on offer in the previous alpha releases are retained, but Skype for Linux Beta lets you:
Call mobiles and landlines with Skype credit
Make one-to-one video calls from Linux to Skype users on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac.
Vew shared screens from other Skype desktop clients
