Similarly, you may ask, when was Skype last updated?
Yes. Support for Skype version 7 and below willend on November 1, 2018 on desktop devices and November 15, 2018 onmobile and tablet devices. When support ends, we'll begin requiringupdates to the latest version.
will Skype shut down? In July, Microsoft announced Skype 8.0 waslaunching on the desktop, and that it would be shuttingdown version 7.0 (aka Skype Classic) as a result. Theolder version would no longer function after September 1,2018, it had said. So it's unclear at this time when SkypeClassic will be closed down for good.
Subsequently, question is, how do I check for updates on Skype?
Select the Update Now button to download, install andsign in to the latest version of Skype.

- Sign into Skype.
- Select Help.
