Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top.

Note that AUR package skypeforlinux-stable-bin is the version Microsoft release as their "stable" version. AUR package skypeforlinux-preview-bin is the version Microsoft release as their preview version and will always be a later version than the stable version. Please don't flag the stable version out of date because you find/read about the later preview version.

It should provide "skype" that should take care of any conflicts as well.

You should add that it conflicts with skype since that is the old client and it is no longer functional anyway.

I just installed pulseaudio-alsa. And voilà, I can finally hear my Skype Call via my USB Headset and not via my laptop speakers. Why the heck is pulseaudio-alsa not a dependency of this package? It really should be!

Anyhow, thanks to hgabreu for providing that hint.

Repositories like those should imho be auto-updated, use some form of script to check for latest version and autocommit and push.

Is there a place where Skype indicates which builds at are stable? I notice my client (this version) tells me there is an update available, but the latest information I've been able to find is at .

@bulletmart, thanks a lot. The latest updates are working 100% on my machine. Thanks a lot for your time & energy maintaining this - much appreciated! More power to you, Ruziel.

@ruziel, updated now.

Hi there. I'm getting a notice on Skype saying that an update is available. Do we have any visibility on when that is expected to hit the AUR? Thanks & more power to you meantime, Ruziel.

@bulletmark. hi & yeah, unfortunately neither works for me. The odd call is fine but most of the time there are audio problems & I can't hear or can't be heard - all my settings in PulseAudio seem to be fine. It's weird. Skype for Web is okay but the dial pad doesn't work for extensions & selecting options. Thanks & go well, R.
