Help Windows Desktop

What effect will the planned Desktop API change have on my headset?

Update: You may have recently noticed a message in Skype regarding changes to your headset-related application.

Your headset will not be affected by the initial changes we are planning to make to the desktop API.

The message in the Skype Client is displayed because your headset uses a technology called the Desktop API to answer calls and end calls when you press one of the call-control buttons built into your headset, or the cable connecting the headset to your computer.

To find out more about the changes we are making, see this blog post.
