Skype for Linux Alpha Can Now Make Video Calls ― But There’s a Catch

Sincemaking itsdebut back in Julythe Skype for linux Alpha client has lacked one critical feature: video calling.

But in a new release today, October 10, 2016,this feature is now present.

‘1-on-1 video calls only work between Skype for Linux Alpha users’

Well, sort of.

Video Calling Now (Sort of) Works

“The team has been working hard on bringing video calls on Linux and today we have the experimental version ready for you,” the Skype team say in a short release post.

But things aren’t quite as simple as you might hope. For now1-on-1 video calls only work between Skype for Linux Alpha users.

That means if your transatlantic aunt and uncle run Skype for windowsthey won’t be able togasp in wonder atyour newly lengthened hair, not if you’re running the Linux alpha build.

“Despite the early phase, we’d like to ask you, the Linux community, to help us with testing. Please let us know how the video works for you.”

Older Versions Are Now Deprecated

Aside from the addition of experimental ― based on early feedback the term ‘temperamental’ may be more apt ― Skype is also blocking access to the service fromolder version of the Skype for Linux Alpha client, specifically version 1.1 to 1.6.

Anyone trying to Skype from one of these older versions will be asked to update to latest version in order to continue using it.
