Microsoft has update the Skype for Linux Alpha app that brings some fixes and a new grid layout of the group calls. Skype for Linux Alpha is update to the version 1.7, that was released back in July this year. Most importantly, the new update brings unread messages related fix. It also brings the fix for application reconnect after it was suspended for longer time.
Here is the full change log for the update:
- Fixed standard behaviour of unread messages – when opening chat with unread messages, the view will focus on the first unread message. As you scroll, messages will be marked as read.
- New grid layout of the group calls
- Fix for application reconnect after it was suspended for longer time
The team responsible for the app ended the change log with the text “Please keep the feedback coming. We’re listening!”. So if you are facing any other issues then you can report them via the Feedback Hub in Windows 10.
