Skype hanging on fedora 32?

Anyone else seeing skypeforlinux locking up after sending a few messages on Fedora 32?

How did you install Skype?

name=skype (stable)
baseurl=https://repo.skype.com/rpm/stable/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://repo.skype.com/data/SKYPE-GPG-KEY

I just added the skype repo, and installed with dnf.

Can you try the flatpak (containerized app) from flathub?

https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.skype.Client

Install: flatpak install flathub com.skype.Client

Run: flatpak run com.skype.Client

Exact same behaviour unfortunately…

I would create a new user and see if the problem persists.

I think this was caused by a clash with msteams. I did a dnf update and it pulled down a change from msteams, the problem has not appeared since I took that change.
