Messenger to Skype starting April 8th 2013

See on Scoop.itSkype 6.2.0.106 for desktop with MICROSOFT OUTLOOK and Skype 1.2 for Windows 8 in 19th Feb 2013

To keep chatting with your Messenger contacts, simply upgrade to the latest   version of Skype using the instructions below and sign in using a Microsoft account

Ian Hall‘s insight:

Starting April 8th, we will begin upgrading customers from Messenger to   Skype. The process will take a few weeks to complete. April 8th is the first   day you may be required to upgrade. This is a bit later than the March 15th   date we previously mentioned to some of you as we wanted to give you more   time to make the transition.
 
  To keep chatting with your Messenger contacts, simply upgrade to the latest   version of Skype using the instructions below and sign in using a Microsoft account (this is   the same ID you use to sign into Messenger). Once signed in, your contacts   will already be there. You’ll be able to instant message and make video calls   with them just like before, and start discovering new ways of staying in   touch, including Skype on your mobile or tablet.
 
  Upgrade   now

 

Yours sincerely,

The Messenger and   Skype Teams

 

New to Skype?

  Get   the latest version of Skype.  Sign into Skype with   your Microsoft account.  See your Messenger   contacts in Skype. 

Already have Skype?

  Upgrade   to the latest version of Skype.  Sign in with your   Microsoft account.  Merge your existing   Skype account with your Microsoft account.  See your Messenger   and Skype contacts in Skype. 

Is this happening   everywhere?  

We are retiring   Messenger globally with the exception of mainland China.

 

What can you get in   Skype?

  Instant message, share files and contacts; send funny        emoticons, access your chat history from virtually anywhere and even        send a message to your contacts when they’re offline  Instant message, video and audio call from more        devices: PC, Mac, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, Android mobile, Kindle        Fire and other devices  Instant message and video call with your Facebook        friends  Group video call with up to ten friends at once*  And that’s just the start – there’s so much to        explore on Skype

Upgrade   now

 

So, what’s happening   between now and the upgrade?

Messenger will   continue to work as you know it today. If you are signed in with Messenger on   your Windows and Mac desktops** you will see a banner notification to   upgrade. When you click on the banner, an installer window will open with the   request to upgrade, this will take you through our installer flow, to install   Skype and automatically uninstall Messenger.

 

So, what’s happening   after the upgrade?  

Messenger users on   Windows and Mac desktops** will not be able to sign in and will only be able   to upgrade to Skype. If you attempt to sign in, a notification will appear,   and if you continue, you will be taken through our installer flow, to install   Skype and automatically uninstall Messenger at the same time.

 

Can I upgrade to   Skype on my mobile or tablet?

Yes. Skype is   available on iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone 8. While you can still   use Messenger on your mobile until a future date, we encourage you to   download the latest version of Skype on your mobile or tablet. You will be   able to sign into Skype on your iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone 8 mobile   apps with your Microsoft account over the next few weeks.

 

Where can I ask   questions or provide feedback?

For more help on   upgrading to Skype, please visit the Skype Support site. We would   love to hear from you – select the "Give Feedback" link in the   Skype Help menu to tell us what you think.

  

* To get group   video, you’ll need a Skype Premium subscription. For best quality, we   recommend calls with up to five people.
  ** Newer versions of Messenger will be able to receive the optional upgrade   notifications. Older versions will not see the notifications and have to download   Skype manually.
