Last month Microsoft started volume up update that was meant to replace the existing skype 7. 0 or skype classic. At first microsoft said that skype 7. 0 will cease to exist on september 1st but it has concluded that it will continue to support skype classic for now
They said and I quote:
“Based on customers feedback we are extending support for skype 7. 0(skype classic) for some time. Our customers can continue to use skype classic”.
This is what microsoft said in a discussion forum with his ccustomers. Althoug skype 8. 0 offer a lot of mouth-watering features like hd video calling drag and drop file sharing, screenshot calls also tweaks in the messaging not all customers actually loved using this features.
After it was released a lot of customers called to the microsoft forum to complain saying that it was too appalling some said they should move back to skype 7. 0 because the skype 8. 0 lacks a lot of features that’s actually enjoyed the skype classic
In a reply to one user who asked for extended support for the classic version, Microsoft shared its announcement of extended support and added, “Thanks for all your comments — we are listening. We are working to bring all the features you’ve asked for into Skype 8.”
Microsoft didn’t say how long the classic version of Skype would be supported.
