Microsoft Is All Set To Kill Skype For Windows Phone 7

Windows Phone users who still operate Windows 7 on their mobile phones are in for a shock since Microsoft has revealed plans of disabling Skype for all mobile phones that run on the aging operating system. This news was released on an official support page where Microsoft posted the question, “Is Skype for Windows Phone 7 being discontinued?" themselves and replied with an affirmative.

This means that the users having Windows Phone 7 operating system will not be able to download Skype on their Windows phone device, as informed by Microsoft itself. Moreover, people who already have the Skype app installed in their computer will no longer be able to login to their account, let alone make calls using the App. Those testing Omni Tech Support can do so by contacting the service in order to know more features that are still available in Windows Phone 7.

Back in January 2012, Microsoft had disappointed its Windows Phone 7 users by announcing that the existing users will not be able to download or install the upcoming operating system, Windows Phone 8 because of hardware incompatibility. The latest Windows Phone 8 operating system has hardware requirements that far exceed the mobile technology that ran in Windows Phone 7. The Standard two-year contract with its users dictates that the user will be able to make use of the operating system for two more years before migrating to a more advanced OS. This means, in 2014, anyone using Windows Phone 7 will not be able to make the best of what the device has to offer.

The new features for users testing Skype have enhanced quality, improved security as well as better reliability at a shorter band-width. However, this version of Skype will only be available for the latest Windows Phone 8 users, while Windows phone 7 users will have to do without the Skype app itself. Skype is presently available in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 as well as other rival platforms, with the sole exception being Windows Phone 7.

This has raised several issues in the process. Several users are paid Skype users with the provision of testing Skype services from their Windows Phone 7 powered mobile device alone. One Skype is disabled, the person will have to cancel their subscription in order to avoid further bills. Several such questions have been detailed in support articles provided by Microsoft themselves.

If you are intent on testing Omni Tech Support, you can contact them and enquire into ways of re-enabling Skype on Windows Phone 7. Genuine OmniTech Support will decline to do so.
