Default Microsoft Dropping Modern Version Of Skype For Windows

According to this blog post, Microsoft is ditching the "modern" version of Skype in favor of the desktop version. With the upcoming release of Windows 10 for PCs, it makes sense to use the Skype application optimized for mouse and keyboards use, capable of doing touch as well rather than 2 separate applications performing the same function. You can get the desktop application today by downloading it here. Anyone trying to access the modern application on PCs starting from July 7 forward will be automatically directed to download the desktop application.
