Skype quits support for Smart TVs


Microsoft will cut support for Skype on TV from 2 June, and Samsung has already confirmed that it will ditch the service

The Skype blog explained: “Since 2010, Skype has delivered a great calling experience in the living room in partnership with several TV manufacturers. But over the years, users have changed the way they use Skype and the majority access it from a mobile device, including when in the living room.

“We want to make sure we prioritise delivering the best possible experience to the platforms our users ask for, which is why we’ve decided to focus our efforts on other areas while supporting key functionality on Skype for TV for as long as possible.”
