    Havent received any mail..Is this offer again only for US customers..Then its a conspiracy…

  • Emi the Strange

    I dont think everyone will get in this thing and dont know when people get the email anyway… I tested it with 2 emails, the one for my MS account and the other for the Skype one.
    I sent it to my dad’s email and I dont think he got it either, and my sister didnt say she got anything.
    but it sounds nice since Microsoft have said they want to drop the Premium from video group calls, so this might be a temporal transition for that.

      “since Microsoft have said they want to drop the Premium from video group calls”

      Something for sure, that wont happen. The group video is eating the most CPU processing power and bandwidth to their NSA-snooped datacenter, all other skype modalities are single digit % compared to video. If they give it for free, who is gonna pay the electricity bills?

      • Emi the Strange

        they want to give it for free because the free when Skype wasnt owned by Microsoft and today people woudl rather go and use Google Hangouts than paying a Premium. not everyone does group video calls anyone, who cares? its not your money the one spent in the bills or the NSA or whateve tin foil hat conspiracy theory you believe…

        I got this quote from Techradar:
        “When TechRadar asked if this could change in the future, Skype told us that it is something that it’s working on. “Yes, it’s something we want to do in the near future,” Yasmin Khan, product manager for Skype Premium, confirmed at the Skype offices in Stockholm. “We realise this is an urgent need for our Skype users.””
        so should I believe you? or the product manager for Skype? like i said Microsoft said they want to drop the Premium from group video calls, and they want it as you read it. end. I dont care about anything but what the said to techradar, and thats all that matters. but you can believe anything you want, I guess.
