Adding to the list of Microsoft's Linux actions in 2017 comes a new preview version of the "next-generation" Skype for Linux.

This long-awaited Skype for Linux update brings screen sharing, group chat, and other features not recently available under the current Skype for Linux client. This new Linux client is part of their effort to "rebuild Skype from the ground up with cloud technology."

The new Skype for Linux Preview can be downloaded from Skype Insider. The older version of their Linux client was retired in July. More details via today's blog post.
