Skype plans to move from Windows phone 

​Skype For Windows Phone Will Stop Working in 2017
With the release of Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft’s support for Windows Phone is gradually starting to die off. We already knew that Windows Phone support for Skype was coming to an end, but now we know more. Microsoft has now announced that as well as ending support for Skype on Windows Phone in October, come ‘early 2017’ the apps will simply stop working. And it’s all thanks to a move to the cloud. The company has already said that the future of Skype is cloud-based rather than peer-to-peer, and this is the reason Windows Phone support is coming to a complete stop. Considering the amount of investment Microsoft has put into Skype, the decision to kill the app entirely is perhaps a little strange, but legacy support — particularly for such a niche handset — does not come cheap.
