Wasn’t business sustainability the whole point of their being bought by Microsoft? Ironic that these things debut on Windows audio calls, then.
Seriously, the first time one of these pops up on my Mac I’m pulling the plug on the whole thing, including Skype Credit.
Update: I’ll be blissfully free of these on my “business” account, since they won’t appear to people with Skype Credit, but, still, folks who want to get rid of the ads and do free voice calls need to pay a minimum of âŹ11.50 on their pay-as-you-go plan.
The clever approach here would have been to charge âŹ2 or so to switch off adds and support the service and make it a lot easier to “upsell” other services.
