Skype ending support for smart TVs

Microsoft-owned messaging service Skype has announced it will end support for its smart TV app at the end of June, the BBC reported.

From there it will be up to manufacturers to decide whether to remove the software from their respective app marketplaces, or continue offering an unsupported service.

Skype said it plans to focus on its tablet and phone services.

It said it has found that subscribers prefer to make calls from a mobile device from their living rooms, despite the size advantage a TV screen offers.
