Skype has announced that it intends to “make way for a new generation of Skype on the desktop” by discontinuing support for legacy apps currently available on Windows PCs and tablets and Mac devices.
“As we look ahead to the future, we‘re focusing our efforts on bringing the latest and greatest to the most recent versions of Skype,” Tom Huang posted. “As a result, we are going to retire older versions of Skype for Windows desktop (6.13 and below) as well as Skype for Mac (6.14 and below) over the next few months.”

As a result, Skype is pushing its users to upgrade to the latest available version in order to take advantage of the new features and improvements made to the app as well as ensuring that the support will still be there when legacy support shuts down over the next few months.
