Skype 2.2 Beta for Linux Brings Skype Access

Skype 2.2 Beta for Linux, codenamed 'Access Granted', is here and brings Skype Access to our Linux users. Skype Access lets you connect to over 500,000 WiFi hotspots worldwide using your Skype Credit.

Skype has improved audio and video quality and reliability, and has addressed the ‘multiple calls’ scenario: you can now receive a second call while a call is ongoing; you can hold and answer it or join the two calls into a conference call.

Finally Skype has fixed a number of problems identified by their internal and external users:

  • Ubuntu users experienced PulseAudio issues with the latest versions
  • KDE users experienced graphic issues using the default Oxygen style
  • and many more – check attached release notes
