Micorsoft is making a major push for Skype users to update to the newer client.

Revealed in a blog post, late last week Microsoft’s new plan to get users off of older version of Skype is as follows. “Skype for Windows desktop (7.16 and below) or Skype for Mac (7.0 to 7.18) will no longer be able to sign in.”

To avoid this issue all you need to do is update your Skype Client to the latest version in order to prevent yourself from being locked out.

The reason for this change is because the older version of Skype were built off the original’s peer-to-peer network. However, Skype now runs in the cloud and is no longer dependent on other devices. This is good because it allows for more powerful services such as file sharing, and mobile video chats. The downside is if you are anyone running an older version of the program you need to update (which you should be doing anyway).

The new software’s yours for the downloading here.
