How to Use Skype on a Google Chromebook
In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to install and use Skype on a Google Chromebook using the new developer application called Arc Welder.
Download Arc: https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc
The never versions of Skype do not appear to be working. You can fix this by downloading version 4.9 of Skype.
Download Skype 4.9: http://www.androidapksfree.com/apk/download-skype-apk-4-9-4-9-0-45564/
Skype APK Mirror: Skype APK 188.8.131.52564
If you are still having issues, there are several known bugs impacting some Chromebook models. Try uninstalling it and reinstalling Arc, otherwise follow the steps under “Test your app” (https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc) to report the bug.
We added a mirror of the APK to the article. It’s local hosted, so it’s not going anywhere.
The “Launch App” button has been replaced with “Test Your App”.
