Skype Punted From App Stores In China

It seems that China doesn’t like Skype. So much so that they’ve apparently banned the messaging app on all platforms that Skype is available on. Microsoft who owns Skype says that this is only “temporary”. But that’s just spin. What China likely wants is the ability snoop on calls and keep track of who’s using the app. I seriously doubt Microsoft will go for that. Thus don’t expect it back in the country anytime soon.
