This article covers how to install Skype on your Ubuntu 18.04 desktop system. Basically, Skype is the most popular platform to connect people through their computer systems. You can freely connect to anyone all around the world through text, voice, and video calls. You can also choose to call people on their telephones but that will not be free.
To Install the Skype snap:
1. Enter the following command in order to refresh the list of available packages:
$ sudo apt-get update
2. Since the Snap daemon comes by default in the latest versions of Ubuntu, we do not need to install it. If you are using an older version, you can use the following command:
$ sudo apt-get install snapd
3. Now type in the following command in order to install Skype Classic version:
$ sudo snap install skype --classic
