If you see a version of Skype quietly disappear from Windows today, donâ€™t be surprised: Microsoftâ€™s finally taking action to clear Windows of some of its redundant software.
Microsoft is consolidating its Skype for Windows 10 and its Skype for Desktop into a single app, the company is disclosing in a support document. (Thurrott.com noted this earlier on Tuesday.) While the (formerly) two versions will now look a lot alike, Microsoft is also terminating a couple of features for right now until it can develop the new app further. It will still be known as Skype for Windows 10.
