Microsoft forcing forcing users to upgrade to the new version of Skype messenger.
Microsoft announced in its blog that developers stop supporting Skype 7 for PC November 1, and the mobile version of the application from 15 November. The old version will be able to work some time, but the company proposes to move to Skype 8, to avoid any issues.
Actually, support for classic versions of Skype had to cease on the 1st of September, but Microsoft has postponed this event due to user complaints. As for Skype 8, this version was released in July of this year and includes free video calls in HD-quality, drag-and-drop support file transfers up to 300 MB and the ability to share the desktop from 24 interlocutors.
