Skype 4.0 for Linux has arrived! Version 4.0 has four major enhancements, along with a host of smaller ones, offering Linux users the latest in Skype features and many UI improvements. The four big updates are:

  • A new Conversations View where users can easily track all of their chats in a unified window;
  • A brand new Call View makes it quicker and easier to get on a call;
  • Call quality is better than ever thanks to several audio quality improvements; and
  • Similarly, video call quality has improved and there is support for more cameras.

This release extends Microsoft’s commitment to support Skype across multiple platforms and devices. Visit the Skype blog for more details on all the improvements that Linux fans can now enjoy and try the new version of Skype for Linux here.
