New changes to Skype desktop application is coming in the form of advertisement. This change is not about adding features to it but it is about monetizing the application. These ads will appear only in the home tab in the Skype starting from this week.
The advertisement will appear for user belonging to US, UK and Germany. The ads will only appear occasionally and they won’t interrupt user Skype experience.
Skype truly offers amazing service for free, so we can overlook these ads and do our work as usual as this won’t hamper us in anyway. But, we can expect the additional revenue generated by this app in anyway will help Skype to make the group video calling free again- like it was in its beta version.
