Microsoft Sunsets Skype For TV

Microsoft Sunsets Skype For TV

We couldn’t do our podcast without Skype. The Geek Trio has been avid users of the software for many years. Therefore, we always take note when Microsoft makes changes. Earlier this year, they added group calling to the mobile app. This week, we discovered Microsoft has plans to sunset the Skype for TV product. The software came standard on smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Phillips, Sony, Sharp, and others. This summer, support for TV-based Skype calls will cease. Needless to say, Microsoft did not see it as a well utilized market.
