Recently, Microsoft announced that it would require that customers use its newest iteration of Skype and began rolling it out with plans to eliminate the old, classic desktop versions.
Customers revolted and Microsoft caved.
In a short, terse response by Babs on the Microsoft Answers forums, the company has pivoted its stance…
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.
Thanks for all your comments – we are listening.
