With the arrival of Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft's backing for Windows Phone is step by step beginning to cease to exist. We definitely realized that Windows Phone support for Skype was arriving at an end, yet now we know more.
Microsoft has now declared that and also finishing support for Skype on Windows Phone in October, come 'mid 2017' the applications will essentially quit working. What's more, it's all because of a move to the cloud.
The organization has as of now said that the fate of Skype is cloud-based as opposed to distributed, and this is the reason Windows Phone backing is arriving at a complete stop. Considering the measure of venture Microsoft has put into Skype, the choice to execute the application completely is maybe somewhat unusual, however legacy support – especially for such a corner handset – does not come modest.
In an upgrade to the Skype bolster pages, Microsoft says:
While backing will never again be accessible from October 2016, the Skype application on Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 will keep on working (potentially with a few constraints) until mid 2017, when we complete the process of moving Skype calling to the cloud (see Skype blog).
While it's actual that there are relatively few individuals who will grieve the loss of Skype for Windows Phone, there are still some who depend on the device and will be compelled to either search out an option, or put resources into another telephone in only a couple of months.
