Skype does not give the user a choice, which is sad

It still works here, and based on this:

We are now upgrading more users to Skype 8

I guess from that we can infer that not everyone is being forced to upgrade at once, at least that’s how I read it the tweet. There’s more related info in that thread too.

I did a quick poll earlier with some Skype friends and no one has yet had their Skype 7 classic disabled and one person even installed it on a fresh new install today (from - link still working when I write this).

So how this is going to go down is hard to say.

Good luck with that Microsoft upgrading me to skype 8 on XP lol :stuck_out_tongue:

Do you know that even on XP, Skype will be upgraded,
even if Skype 8 won’t work properly since you’re on XP, you’ll still be upgraded.
