New new chat room 2.0!
So, Skype is kind of old hat, but its been revamped and now works on the web. No download required.

To get to Skype in your browser, go to http://web.skype.com/en but you can also use the link below to directly join the chat.

There is still a Dirty chat and here is the link:
https://join.skype.com and then add /kXpYTdRfIHtH (test to fool russian bots)

If you want to download Skype, then you can get it from here:
Windows: https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/skype-for-windows/ (Windows Store or Classic Skype download)
MacOS X: https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/skype-for-mac
Linux: https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/skype-for-linux/ (DEB, RPM, SNAP)

Use the dropdown to choose your version.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.skype.raider
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyp...304878510?mt=8

For other platforms like Windows Phone, XBox, Android and iOS tablets, Apple Watch/Android Wear, Kindle etc go here: https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/

For the record, if you still have an old Skype account that doesnt use your email as login, and you're using a username to login, you need to change that ASAP because that's why you hear reports of people's accounts being hacked. Just go to your Microsoft account security settings and disable your Skype username in "alias preferences". Once you do that, your Skype username (and old Skype password) cannot be used to login to your Microsoft account.

Re: New chat room!
Some are likely lurking like me. I check in once or twice a week, but yeah, it seems like most people take their discussions elsewhere on the internet..

Re: New chat room!
Unfortunately people dont really hang out online in public anymore. Which is really sad. FB chat, whatsapp and other walled gardens are the way these days. The chat is still there and go in there every week or so. Me and some other dirts have a private Slack chat. We used to use Skype but it became too bloated and loads of accounts got hacked when MS switched to Microsoft Live account checkins.

EDIT: totally updated the chat room info.

True, there are more ways to stay in touch these days and people drift apart...
Must be an age thing I guess...

Yes, every time I go to Skype Russian people want to be my friend

Re: New chat room!
Last I saw, it was MIKE who got hacked. *facepalm*

But its not our fault that someones account gets hacked and decides to send out friend requests. We've cleaned it up for now.
