Microsoft pushed out skype 8 preview today to me when I looked for updates.
I can't find how to turn it off the options are not in advanced, luckily I can still get classic skype, but if this really becomes a problem, my plan will to unsubscribe from the nvda group, its about the only thing and reason I have skype classic now.
After that I will use skype classic for amily things till microsoft finally pull it, however, I suspect its going to be a smart device, skype and maybe whats app pritty soon.
Its also clear that microsoft is now no longer keeping it a secret on skype7's death.
They are not updating it anymore.
Thats fine as long as we can still get it and never get an update for it again.
