In September last year, Microsoft brought SMS Connect back to the new Skype app for Insiders. The feature lets Skype users with Android phones sync their text messages to the Skype app and send and receive SMS messages from their PC.

Hopefully, Skype Insiders did not get too used to the feature, as Microsoft is once again removing it.

Microsoft has been sending messages informing them that the feature would be disabled on the 30th August.

For those who want similar functionality (though not in an integrated app) Microsoft recommends their new Your Phone app, which does much the same.

Have any of our readers been using the feature and will you miss its removal? Let us know below.
