Subject: A Skype update may be required
We are working to make Skype better for you. With Skype version 8, you’ll be able to record calls, have private conversations, make HD video calls, transfer files up to 300 MB, and more.

Your conversation history will still be available on your device after you update. Check system requirements to make sure you can use Skype version 8 on your device as the list of supported OS versions has changed. If your OS is no longer supported, you should export your history prior to updating. Visit our update FAQ to learn more.
=========

I am skeptical and will try to postpone this Skype upgrade [and if new Skype 8 still sucks too much - switch to Discourse or Slack].

Meanwhile, Microsoft froze the thread where users are asking to Stop Automatic Updates to Skype and deleted users comments.

Does anyone know how I can stop automatic updates to the Skype app for desktop? I have found directions for doing so in older app versions, but not the current one. I'm running Skype version 8.22.0.2

Thank you in advance for the help!

Fighting against Skype users - what a wonderful idea for a software business that is running Skype.
