Hello everyone, you can download Skype for Ubuntu, but before you do, have you actually heard of Skype? Chances are you probably have, if not, detailed paragraphs about what Skype is and what it can do for you is right below. I have been using Skype for at least 10 years now, since the days before WhatsApp existed, way before Microsoft even bought Skype so I highly recommend it to everyone to try it at least once before you knock it or move on to alternative.

Skype has finally being ported to Linux and it is an active snap app meaning you can literally install it with a single click, much like how it is on Windows or MacOS.
