Starting June 2, 2016, the Skype application will no longer be available on Samsung Smart TVs.

As the technology landscape has evolved, consumers have shown a growing preference for using video messaging on their mobile devices, with smartphones and tablets becoming the most natural way to reach friends and family on the couch or on the go. With this in mind, Skype has decided to shift its investment exclusively to mobile and will discontinue support and development for all Skype™ for TV services from June 2016. To ensure Samsung continues to offer the best experience for our consumers, the Skype™ for TV service will no longer be available on Samsung Smart TVs from June 2, 2016. Customers, however, will still be able to access their Skype accounts by using a smart phone, tablet or PC – allowing them to connect with friends, family and colleagues across the globe.
