According to AdDuplex around 90% of phones running a Microsoft mobile operating system are using Windows Phone 8.1 and lower.
It seems Skype does not want much more to do with those people, as they are deprecating support for millions of Windows Phone users.
In their documentation announcing a new feature – the ability to save video messages, they also note:
It is interesting that a Microsoft-owned company treats Windows Phone users worse than a 3rd party such as WhatsApp. Skype is of course working on a Universal Windows App which will also come to Windows 10 Mobile, but withdrawing support from legacy Windows Phone users would just be another reason for those users to upgrade to other operating systems.
