Skype WiFi is a fantastic way to connect to the internet whenever you are on the move. As payment Skype credit is used for logging in to public WiFi hot-spots around the world. But the company is now bringing an end to its popular feature.
Skype WiFi service will end on March 31st and users will not be able to buy WiFi access in paid public hot-spots for a payment less than what is charged by the hot-spot owner. Microsoft has started notifying its users on Skype.
After Microsoft acquired Skype in May 2011, the plan was to let the business go as usual. The WiFI product even got some development during this time and the service was re-branded to Skype WiFi. But even then the service is being brought to an end.
Users with Skype credit can use it to purchase other WiFi services such as calling on non-Skype numbers, but they won’t be able to use it for WiFi service soon.
