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.

Skype
The decision to discontinue Skype's Desktop API impacts our ability to use Skype within my normal Skype calling activities. Please reconsider this decision and provide a migration path such that the user functionality provided by these API's is sustained. In summary we request that Skype/Microsoft provide continued support for third party Skype utilities that have become mission critical to Skype's users.
