Today is the day.

RIP skype classic



(Screenshot took today)


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



Fuck off.

Translated : An update is needed if this group chat wants to use the call and messages features, to do so, type /update in this group chat.


Techinicly its not dead until 9pm
Because its godamm night at Microsoft

So use as long as you can :stuck_out_tongue:


Ahem. You will need Windows 7 some time soon.


why? :stuck_out_tongue:


Skype 5 was my favorit :confused:


Still working


Welcome to the club!


Skype 7 will die when Microsoft will open at the morning :stuck_out_tongue:


lol 9/11




tragic date


Just not yet my friend! :wink:


i know, new skype sucks, classic skype and MSN4Life


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.
