Microsoft is not discontinuing the classic Skype app for Windows anytime soon


Microsoft recently announced that the classic version of Skype
would be retired in the fall and the users were required to
upgrade to a newer, better and modern version of Skype in order
to continue to use the messaging service.

A number of Skype users took to the social media websites such
as Reddit and the community board to complain about the new
Skype, that is supposed to replace classic Skype. The users
said that they hated the new Skype update and a small number of
people called appalling.

Skype classic (version 7.0) is indeed outdated and it no longer
supports the modern improvements that the software giant might
want to implement in near future. Last month, the company
said that the application will be pulled on September 1 for all

Microsoft has apparently extended the deadline and said it
would continue to support Skype 7 for now, that means the app
isn’t going to stop working on your computers anytime soon.

“Based on customer feedback, we are extending support for Skype
7 (Skype classic) for some time,” Microsoft said in
an update to a discussion post on its community forum. “Our
customers can continue to use Skype classic until then,”
Microsoft explains.
