Skype removed from China Apple and Android app stores
Skype's call and messaging service has been removed from app stores in China, including the Apple app store. The app is also no longer available for download on Android app stores in China. A Microsoft spokesperson said: "The iOS version of Skype has been temporarily removed from the app store in China... we're passionate about the benefit that Skype offers to our users around the world by facilitating communication and enabling collaboration." The company declined to comment on when its Skype app was first removed, or the situation with Android. Tests by BBC staff in China found Skype was not available for download on Apple or Android app stores on Wednesday.
