Skype not in repository

Post by david_h » Wed Feb 07, 2018 1:25 pm

There doesn't seem to be a Skype or skypeforlinux app in the software repository any more. It was there a few weeks ago. Is this because there isn't a version that works properly anymore ? If not can I install the debian version from the skype website and expect it to work with 18.1?
