Microsoft has announced the release of Skype 8.0 for desktop and it brings a range of new features to Skype on the desktop.
Some of these new features include an updated messaging feature, free HD video and screen sharing calls and more.
We are encouraging everyone to upgrade now to avoid any inconvenience as only Skype version 8.0 will work after September 1, 2018. As we roll out improvements, there comes a time when we must shut down older services and application versions. This is done to ensure that all customers have the best possible Skype experience, and that there are no quality or reliability issues resulting from old technology and new technology interoperating. We know change can be hard, so we’re working to make the update as simple as possible. For help with the upgrade, please visit our support site. We appreciate the support of the Skype community as we upgrade the experience and listen to feedback along the way.
You can find out more details about the new Skype 8.0 for desktop over at the Skype blog at the link below.
