Which browser you use or have installed will not affect Skype 8. Skype 8 is an Electron app, and Electron is basically web content in a Chrome control that does not run inside an actual browser.

Answers regarding Windows Skype

Doug Lee
 

Microsoft's announcement of the September 1 discontinuation of Skype 7 (Classic) has brought us quite a bit of traffic on this list. Here are some hopefully helpful bits of info:

Will Skype 7 (Classic) work after September 1 if you download it now? Microsoft says no. They are not just saying they're no longer going to support it; they're saying it will not work after that date. Time will tell, but
that's the official word.

Which Skype should we use then? I now say Skype 8, because Microsoft has begun offering it to everyone, even Windows 10 users. Skype UWP for Windows 10 is still supported though.

Did I once say I thought Skype 8 would soon die? Possibly; I predicted Skype UWP would become the preferred Skype version. As of now though, I believe Skype 8 will become the preferred version. Again, time will tell.

Are there JAWS scripts for Skype 8? Yes, at http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/ - and I just updated them before sending this email. See the site I just gave for details on what changed.

Is there an NVDA add-on for Skype 8? Yes, at http://www.dlee.org/skype/electron/skype.nvda-addon

Is there a list of keyboard shortcuts for Skype 8? Yes, at https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12025/what-are-hotkeys-and-how-do-i-use-them-in-skype

Will Clisk work with Skype 8? No. The API required by Clisk is no longer supported at all in Skype 8 or Skype UWP. (For those who don't know, Clisk, the Command Line Interface for Skype, is a Python-based application I've
maintained for many years.) This end-of-life for that API is no surprise and was in fact delayed for several years beyond initial expectations.

I wish everyone well in this transition, and I hope my scripting and add-on work is helpful.

Re: Microsoft is Killing Skype Classic on September 1-

Octavian Rasnita
 


OK, but then how it can be considered OK, or even acceptable?
We might accept this limitation and not start chatting with more than one person concomitently, but other people might start chatting us.
What can we do in that case? Can we distinguish somehow the source of chat messages? Can we decide to whom we want to type to if this thing happends?
 
The very bad policy of forcing us to use another worse application doesn't make me have the courage of trying Skype 8, see if I like it, and if not, return to Skype 7 at least for the next one month and a half, because I'm afraid that this might be impossible and I might need to start using the worse solution right now.

I remember, and he wrote skype about this on twitter, but  they were not very clear on their answer. All they said was skype 7 would go followed by electron. 8 I think is going to stay and be integrated with windows  at some point.

Do you recall seeing an email from doug in which he states he doesn't believe the lifespan of skype 8 will last very long?

Therefore, if classic goes, and 8 follows, where are we then?

I dunno. I personally am loving the skype new interface. I can actually I believe hear when my contacts come online. I think I can see it anyway I have to play with it. and as for Itgroups I’m not having any issues wiht those. Iv’e ben able to create and add to groups. Over all the experience is very good.
