Skype Purchased By Microsoft

Now Skype will also support such Microsoft devices as Kinect, Xbox, Windows Phone and other Windows devices. In addition, Microsoft is planning to connect Skype users with such communities as Outlook, Lync, Xbox Live and others.

Microsoft Corp. announced yesterday of acquisition of Skype Global. The deal totaled at $8.5 billion. This move is considered to help the company improve the communications between Microsoft networked platforms.

Microsoft said in a press release that the deal is planned to enhance the accessibility of real-time video and voice communications within the Microsoft networked platforms. This is supposed to benefit both outside and enterprise users, while generating new considerable business and revenue opportunities. Combination with Skype’s world-class brand, Microsoft acquires the easier reach of its networked platform, at the same time improving the company’s existing record of real-time communications clients and services.

Previously, one of the many obstacles for Microsoft has been an inability to stave off competition in face of Google and Apple that offered their GTalk and Facetime video chat possibilities. Now, when it has brought Skype on board, it caused an immediate and generous boost in that direction.

Among the promised new features there is a Skype support of such Microsoft devices as Xbox and Kinect, along with Windows Phone and other devices running Windows. Apart from this, Microsoft also promised to connect Skype with communities like Lync, Outlook, and Xbox Live.

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO, promised to create the future of real-time communications together with Skype, so that people all over the world could easily stay in touch with their families, friends, and business partners wherever they are.

Before this acquisition, Skype was acquired by eBay 6 years ago, but the company failed to really find a meaningful synergy with Skype Global. However, now Tony Bates, Skype Chief Executive, admitted that Skype and Microsoft share the same vision of delivering software innovation and servicers to the Internet users, which would help them to accelerate the plans of extending their global community. Besides, the cooperation will reveal new ways for everyone to communicate and work together.

No avatarTypical big business with lots of cash and few ideas, signalling the demise of Microsoft. Can't even create their own products any more. What's the actual last product they created?

cj1404 avatar@ liltay00 --> The dollar in going deeper down the crapper. That is why $8.5 billion is the new $800 million.

Not only did Microsoft get the name and the code, they got the people that created it (assuming they are still with Skype). Try to remember, Bill Gates is gone. Steve Balmer is the top dog now, maybe things with Microsoft will change for the better.

DEMONLORD4000 and CousinOdin be strong.

tonymengela avatarI'm kind of laughing at all these comments. Microsoft changed computing to what it is today. Microsoft laughs at 8 billion, they will buy anything that they can use to increase their own technology. Look at when Xbox got hacked, what did they do? They hired the hackers and improved their system, integrated and improved the hacks into the system and made Xbox360. Has anyone ever herd of litigation by microsoft against anyone? You may not like them but you all run their stuff. It may not be perfect but they do progress, improve. Everyone else just tries to sue you. Yes they do have instabilities in their stuff, but they push the limits of progress, and as we all know progress is not perfect but it is moving. Look at it this way skype can only make their stuff more reliable. and to the comment about privacy in online conversations.!?!?!?!?! lol lol lol nothing is private on the net NOTHING everything is recorded, everything is gone over and picked apart.

Darkan9el avatar@11 awesome avatar, I've even learned the dance hahaha, that's one humdinger of a jive lol!

@13 never been a fan of Skype, my family all use it as a sort of family intercom lol! You can't really argue with W7 its pretty stable well for me it is no crashes ever and even if you wanted to diss MS its only to try and get some credibility to join the Linux "I love brown" club lol!

Personally I'm hardcore cmd prompt >_

KKKhan avatarnice share , they asked skype to share information with agencies and skype refused so they made Microsoft buy it on behalf of agencies .

Zedalu avatarI just wonder how long it will be before we have to start paying a monthly fee if we want to continue using Skype.

tonymengela avatarSkype will probably stay the same microsoft wanted skype not for the platform but its networking capability, over broadband.

I hate MS

But now that Bill Gates is out of the way, maybe it's gonna be different.
