Skype on Raspberry Pi 4

Tue Aug 06, 2019 8:35 pm

Will it be possible to run Skype on Raspberry Pi 4?! Since Exagear is no longer available, is there another x86 emulator for the Raspberry Pi 4?!

Better would be if someone could manage to write a Skype-compatible program that runs natively on the Pi. However, since Skype itself is proprietary, that's not terribly likely.

Web Skype won't work in Firefox, and some of use don't want to have a web browser open running extra scripts.

Pidgin is a universal chat client. You can install it using apt. There is a third party plugin for Skype.
Ever wanted to run an .img file before flashing it to an SD card?
Or wished you could run Stretch on a Pi 4?
Or wanted to run two versions of Raspbian on a single Pi simultaneously?
You can do all of that, and more, with my Vdesktop script - https://bit.ly/2GeNuIw

Does Pidgin support video chat/conferencing?
