微軟先前暫緩Skype 7.0終止支援日期,本週微軟宣佈Skype 7.0(含更早前的舊版本)的Desktop版本將在今年11月1日終止、Mobile devices and tablets版則在11月15日終止,同時也將持續改善Skype 8.0以符合使用者的需求

 

微軟周四(9/27)宣布,將在今年11月停止支援Skype 7.0及更早之前的Skype版本,預計於11月1日終止對桌面版的支援,繼之於11月15日終止對行動版的支援。

微軟在7月16日發表Skype 8.0的同時宣布要在9月1日停止對舊版本的支援,包括關閉舊版服務與應用程式,但有不少用戶抱怨Skype 8.0並不符合需求,甚至揚言出走,讓微軟踩下剎車延後關閉舊版服務的時間。

本周微軟則表示,他們持續地改善新版Skype,盡可能地提供使用者最需要的功能,包括推出通話錄音及對話搜尋功能,而且很快就會允許使用者在既有的通訊錄加上電話號碼,以及提供更多的上線狀態控制,為了能更專注地改善Skype 8,決定在11月終止對舊版Skype的支援。

微軟等於強迫所有Skype用戶都得升級到Skype 8。根據微軟的說法,Skype 8可統一桌面版與行動版的Skype經驗,所有Skype 8的應用都針對現代化且行動友善的雲端服務架構進行了最佳化,由於所有應用都不必再支援舊版的架構,使得工程團隊可更快地交付功能及改善品質。

微軟也在昨天鼓勵所有舊版用戶應立即升級到Skype 8以避免服務中斷。

More info on the update to Skype version 8

Hello, Skype community! We hope you're all enjoying the latest updates to Skype version 8 for desktop, mobile, and tablet devices. We wanted to share a few more details on the ongoing update to Skype version 8 to keep you up to speed on the latest info.

Why update everyone to Skype version 8?

The update from version 7 to version 8 allows us to unify the experience of using Skype across all desktop and mobile platforms. Unlike older versions, all version 8 applications are optimized to work in conjunction with our modern, mobile-friendly cloud services architecture, which has allowed us to deliver features such as video messaging and mobile group video calling over the past couple years.  With a unified experience and with all applications now no longer having to support legacy architecture, our engineering teams can deliver features and quality improvements to customers much more quickly.

What can you expect over the next several months?

  • We're sending an email to people still using older Skype versions so they know the update is coming. We published a blog post and have communicated the change in this forum, but we want to be sure everyone who might be impacted by this change is well-informed.  We expect everyone who might be impacted to receive an email notification by the end of October.
  • Then we'll start requiring people to update to Skype version 8 in waves over the next several months. Not everyone will be required to update at once.
    • Desktop: First wave begins on 11/1/2018
    • Mobile devices and tablets: First wave begins on 11/15/2018
  • We strongly recommend you update now, prior to being required to do so, to avoid any interruption in service. Find out how to download the latest Skype versions here.
  • Skype version 14 is available for Windows 10 PCs in the Microsoft Store for Skype Insiders. It is based on version 8, but has additional features to better integrate with the platform. You can run version 8 for desktop and version 14 for Windows 10 PCs at the same time on your PC. We'll keep releasing updates to version 14 as we update version 8.
  • We'll continue to update Skype version 8 and version 14 based on your feedback and communicate what's changing as we go.

Many of you have taken the time to share your thoughts on this update. Thank you. We appreciate it! We learned how important it is to you to maintain feature parity with older Skype versions and we're working towards that goal. Here's a few examples of features we've already brought back based on your feedback and a few more we're going to work on next.
