If you are still stuck on Windows Phone 7, it’s time to move over to Windows Phone 8. There are some decent in Windows Phone 8 portfolio and it’s going to get better with time as the Finnish maker is expected to announce the purported Lumia 1520, which will bring support for quad-core processors and 1080p displays.
Let’s just get to the point; there is a bad news for Windows Phone 7 users, especially those who regularly use Skype. Microsoft announced that they are dropping support for Windows Phone 7 and will not release any update for the outdated operating system. The company announced that they are going to deploy there resources for making Windows Phone 8 a better experience and improve its performance.
As we look ahead to the future, we are focusing all our efforts to bring great experiences and improved performance to Windows Phone 8, building on the capabilities of the platform. As a result we are not planning to release further updates to Skype for Windows Phone 7. However the Windows Phone 7 app will remain available to download in the Windows Phone Store, so users can still keep using the core Skype experiences, such as Chat, Voice and Video Calls.
This isn’t surprising as Windows Phone 7 is quite old. The operating system came into being in 2010, and it is time we should move on. The application will still be available in the Windows Phone store allowing users to use Chat, Voice and Video Calls features.
