What is the future of Skype for Window Phone 7?

Over the past year we’ve been working hard to bring Skype closer to Microsoft services and devices and make the best out of every platform Skype is available for.

For example, Skype for Windows Phone was the first Skype mobile app to have HD video calling and the new Modern user interface. It was also the first to introduce the always-on mode while being power efficient at the same time.  

Our data show that majority of Windows Phone users now use Skype for Windows Phone 8. The Windows Phone 8 platform enables us to add new exciting features to Skype and improve both the app’s performance and your experience.

As a result we’re not planning to release further updates to Skype for Windows Phone 7.

However, we’re not abandoning users who have smartphones powered by Windows Phone 7 operating system. Skype for Windows Phone 7 will remain available to download in the Windows Phone Store, so you can keep using the app and its great features.

Keep watching our blogs to learn more about the new releases and features of Skype for Windows Phone 8.
