We're making sure that Skype continuously evolves to offer our users the latest technology. Therefore, Skype has been transitioning from a peer-to-peer architecture to a cloud infrastructure.
Moving to the cloud ensures that Skype features such as group video calling, audio, and chat are available when you want them.
Beginning January 22nd, 2018, users on Skype for Web and Skype for Desktop v7.40 and lower (Windows/Mac) will no longer be able to make translated calls or have translated chats.
If you're running Skype on any of these platforms and you want to have translated conversations, you'll need to upgrade to the new Skype where Skype Translator is now available on both mobile and desktop.
To enjoy the best of Skype, make sure you are always on the
latest version as we release new features regularly.
