From Petition Creator: Skype has announced ongoing support for voice and video recording as well as Skype certified hardware with embedded Skype features. Due to changes a cloud-based text messaging infrastructure, which buffers text messages when users are not online, support for chat-related API's has been discontinued.

Skype has announced the termination of support for their Desktop API's at year end. However, millions of Skype users have come to rely on the third party utilities developed by Skype's developer partners for their everyday communications activities, especially small to medium businesses. This petition requests Skype to reconsider this decision until they can provide support for these developers to continue to offer their added funtionality, such as call recording, chat archiiving, chat translation, headset operation to the basic Skype calling experience.

      So I can continue to use Skype to call my relatives in the Philippines from my PC. Same goes for my mom who doesn't own a smartphone.

      Trillian uses Skypekit. If Skype Support in Trillian will be lost, I most likely will drop Skype too.
