New Skype For Web Revamp Drops Support for ChromeOS and Linux

Skype on Web gets HD video calls recording and improved notifications

Micosoft’s new Skype for Web no longer supports ChromeOS or Linux

It's unclear whether other experimental features, such as automatic background blurring, will also arrive soon.

At the time of writing there has been no word from Microsoft (which owns Skype) as to whether that will change.

Chrome and Microsoft Edge users no longer have to keep using the standalone desktop app if they don't want to - just retreat to the web app, instead, since apart from HD video calling, it now offers call recording, as well. The new update comes for those who don't like to use the apps on the phone, and are still using the Skype for Web platform.

Some of the features include HD video calling which apparently will come with call reactions.
