Microsoft is thinking to shut down its Skype Office situated in London, and to respite the nearly 400 people who are employed there.
According to Media Microsoft said, “Microsoft made the decision to unify some engineering positions, potentially putting at risk a number of globally focused Skype and Yammer roles,”
Skype was one of the first biggest voice chatting apps, but was increasingly under threat from all the sides. Skype will still maintain its other offices throughout the world except in London.
Some former employees of Skype told the Media that Microsoft was continuously replacing the Skype employees with its own, increasingly taking over the control.
