Skype is a video calling service by Microsoft has released has posted they will no longer offer support for the TV app. From June 2016, the TV application will not be supported; and no new updates will be made to the application.
The reason given by Skype was that smartphones and tablets have become a more prominent platform for Skype users. In the post, it was written “Since 2010, Skype has delivered a great calling experience in the living room in partnership with several TV manufacturers. But over the years, users have changed the way they use Skype, with the majority accessing it from a mobile device – including when in the living room. We want to make sure we prioritize delivering the best possible experience to the platforms our users are asking for, which is why we’ve decided to focus our efforts in other areas while supporting key functionality on Skype for TV for as long as possible.”
The Skype for TV application might be removed from some or all of the models. They suggest contacting your TV manufacturer for information on the availability of the app on your TV model. If you have downloaded the app, it will continue to work unless Microsoft announces the app will stop working. Clearly this is a move towards the platforms which receive a better response from the users of the app.
