Safari no longer supports Skype for Web

Last week, Microsoft released an update for the “Skype for Web” client, dropping support for all browsers except Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome. Microsoft explained in a statement to Venture Beat, that the service requires calling and media technology that is different across all browsers, and they prioritized bringing the service on a customer value basis.

The new update brings HD video calling capabilities, ability to search for messages (similar to WhatsApp), built-in call recording, and a new media browser.

Skype for web initially launched in 2016.

It is unclear if Safari may support Skype for Web in the future, it may be a priority, as Safari is one among the most used desktop browsers.
