Microsoft recently announced that Windows Phone 7 users will no longer be able to use Skype “within the next few weeks”. Not just discontinuing updates, bug fixes, or support, but terminating use altogether – not allowing sign-ins from Windows Phone 7 devices.
According to data from AdDuplex published on WMPoweruser, there are still 8-10 million active Windows Phone 7 users out there.
In contrast to the Skype decision, we here at Gotya are all about supporting older smartphones by enabling consumers to turn them into connected motion detection cameras for a near-free, portable DIY security and surveillance system.
Gotya supports and will continue to support Windows Phone 7. If you’re a WP7 user or if you have upgraded to WP 8/8.1 and have your old WP7 device (like a Lumia 800, the first-ever WP7 Nokia Lumia from November, 2011) lying around doing nothing, turn it into a near-free motion detection camera with remote snapshots and alerts with Gotya. And, you can use your current WP8/8.1 device as a remote control for your Gotya WP7 motion detection camera!
WP7 users and device owners, we got your back.
