Unfortunately, not yet....

Even if installed with rpm -Uvh --nodeps installation, it does not operate correctly, probable SSE3 e.t.c. instruction set problem....

If you have the skype repo installed then running yum install skypeforlinux-5.5.0.1-1 should work.

Up to now, yes it works...

"RHEL7 is not officially supported distribution, which means we cannot guarantee Skype will work there.
However, we will take a look at it ASAP and try to resolve the issue for you, so you can keep using the client.
Stay tuned for the upcoming updates :-)
Kind regards,

"8.11.76.3-1 from skype-unstable installs fine and appears to work correctly. Thanks for fixing this.
Excellent!
Thank you for letting us know.
Kind regards,
JonasT"

I downloaded it from https://www.skype.com/en/insider/ .... or you may use the unstable repository https://repo.skype.com/rpm/unstable/

Everything installs and operates Ok...
