Get the latest Skype | We see that you recently used Skype version 7. If you’ve already updated to Skype version 8 please ignore this message.
We see that you recently used Skype version 7. If you’ve already updated to Skype version 8 please ignore this message.
We’re letting you know that support for Skype version 7 will end on November 1, 2018 on desktop devices and November 15 on mobile and tablet devices. When support ends, we’ll begin requiring updates to version 8. Although you may be able to use older versions for a little while, we encourage you to update today to avoid any interruption.
We are working to make Skype better for you. With Skype version 8, you’ll be able to record calls, have private conversations, make HD video calls, transfer files up to 300 MB, and more.
Your conversation history will still be available on your device after you update. Check system requirements to make sure you can use Skype version 8 on your device as the list of supported OS versions has changed. If your OS is no longer supported, you should export your history prior to updating. Visit our update FAQ to learn more.
Thanks for your continued support!
