Microsoft announced late Sunday night in a blog post on the Skype Support page that a new Skype client for the Microsoft Band will be coming this summer. The company described this new endpoint as “focusing on their users needs as mobile consumers”
It would seem no one on the Skype team had been made aware the Microsoft Band was being discontinued, and we here at The Tech Informant did not have the heart to tell them.
The new client will be rolling out randomly to users over the next 2-20 months. A beta is available today for Microsoft Band Insiders.
