Re: latest skype update

inamuddin khan

Dear, the matter of fact is that now a days there are two Skype for desktop available one is called Skype classic and the other one is Skype preview for desktop.

Both are very different from  each other.

In my humble opinion we must learn the new one because appearing Skype preview for desktop means that today or tomorrow Microsoft will quit Classic Skype for desktop and will replace from Skype preview.

I therefore feel urgency of Jaws script for Skype preview so we can start learning and using it!

I hope that after reading my email, your confusion will end!

I'm a bit confused after reading this thread, and maybe I've misunderstood

it, so I have comments to make and a question to ask.

I thought the only Skype which works in Windows 7 was Skype desktop. This is

the first time I've heard that Skype for Windows 10 might also work on

Windows 7. Or have I totally misunderstood what was said? Will Skype Desktop

disappear when support for Windows 7 ends, or before that?

I still use Skype Desktop, and I plan to continue to do so as long as this

Windows 7 computer lasts. I might have to change when I get a Windows 10 PC,

but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Talking of which, do I understand right that you can't use Skype Desktop on

Windows 10? Or does the Windows 10 Skype simply become the default on that

Windows version?

Thanks in advance for anyone who can clear up this confusion. I hope to keep

Skype Desktop going here as long as I can, maybe on Windows 10 if that's

possible, but it'll be useful to know how things stand as far as the

continued existence of Skype Desktop goes.

Bye for now, and happy skyping, whichever version you use!

From Clare

No strong evidence, but I'm afraid that Microsoft won't maintain 2 types of

Skype if the new Skype is working under Windows 7 already.

Those who need it just for personal chat might not find this a very big

issue, but those that need it for work and need performance from it might
