Microsoft ending support for classic Skype (version 7) N̶o̶v̶e̶m̶b̶e̶r̶ ̶1 January 8

OUF its bad


#23

boy , skype 8 and skype for windows 10 arent the same thing


#24

skype for windows 10 is an anniversary update and is pretty much pre-installed. version #1607


#25

does anyone know if the messenger app on windows 8.0 does still work?


#26

Considering that Messaging used the same servers that hosted the MSNP versions for MSN, since as stated before, Messaging used MSNP22 for communication between the server and users, that’s pretty much dead now.


#27

skype online have skype 7 ’ s desing so not everthing is lost


#28

Skype 8 looks really like a mobile app… What’s next? Mobile Edge on Desktop?


#29

probaly


#30

I’m sure that is what comes next :stuck_out_tongue: it usually does


#32

Is someone going to bring the version 7 back after Microsoft ends supporting it?


#33

someone here posted 5.5 patched.if he did that then sure he could patch 7 when its retired.


#34

And they backpedalled…

UPDATE: Based on customer feedback, we are extending support for Skype 7 (Skype classic) for some time. Our customers can continue to use Skype classic until then.

No, IIRC Microsoft gave up on Edge months ago and made a Chrome extension to use Windows SmartScreen
