Just read the article it had to happen sooner or later. I am using windows 10 still with the desk top version of skype and flip between that and the universal version of it as well. I guess unless windows 7 users upgrade to 10 the old code might not work with 10 etc.

hence slowly stop working over time.

I wonder if the new one they are working on skype for web will be the replacement for users before 10 which can be found at

If i remember right it will work through your browser. I had a quick play a couple of months back but have not been back in to have more of a play and.

I do have a mostly written tutorial for the app version but not posted yet or was it finished.

I think when i had a play with the web version it was pretty accessible minus some features which are still coming or may be already there now?
