In honor of Skype’s newest update, the video chat and messaging app is dropping support for a variety of platforms.
According to Techcrunch, over a dozen Skype apps and platforms (including SkypeKit-powered phones) are losing Skype support on July 1, meaning you won’t be able to use the service on certain devices. Bummer.
I’m never a fan of dropping support for older operating systems, especially if maintaining it requires minimal work. On the other hand, the operating systems losing support are years old or underutilized, meaning it might make more fiscal sense for Skype to just drop support for them altogether. Operating systems losing support include iOS 7 and earlier, Android 4.0.2 and earlier, BlackBerry OS 7.1 and earlier, and Skype on TV.
SkypeKit-enabled devices are also losing support, though…
I have a crazy passion for #music, #celebrity #news & #fashion! I'm always out and about on Twitter.
