Microsoft cuts off Skype support for Windows Phone 7

Microsoft cuts off Skype support for Windows Phone 7 because old things must die

There are two ways to deliver bad news: an overlong, meandering apology or the 'pull no punches' route. Microsoft, in explaining away future Skype support for Windows Phone 7, went with option number one. You see, it's not you, it's Windows Phone 8. And besides, according to Microsoft, there aren't even really that many of you left on WP7 to merit continued updates. Please understand, this is about the future; it's about integrating Skype into every (viable) Microsoft platform and product and you, forlorn WP7 user, aren't part of that picture. Chin up, though, you can still download the app from the Windows Phone Store. Now don't say Microsoft never gave you anything. Buh bye.

I wouldn't worry about it as the title is completely misleading.  Skype will remain available for WP7 but they're not going to release any further upgrades.
