We previously reported that Skype support would be ending support in Japan, and now it is also ending in Europe, too.

Skype is no longer available to download and won’t be usable after June 22. When reached out to, PlayStation Online Support explained:

On 22 June 2016, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. will end support for the Skype application for PlayStation Vita and the Skype feature for PSP (PlayStation Portable).

From 22 March 2016, the Skype application for PlayStation Vita will be removed from PlayStation Store. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding.

    Not a feature that I’ve ever used, but I’m sure someone out there will be disappointed.

      Damn Microsoft ruining people’s fun.

      • maybe Sony does not want to pay money to Microsoft anymore 🙂 never used it, and I hardly use it on PC

    “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding” – I hate these stupid generic apologies. Any inconvenience? Like what? Not being able to use the app anymore? Understanding of what? That you are not interested in supporting the Vita? I’m glad you appreciate that because you make it abundantly clear.

    While the lack of support annoys me, the app itself was a POS, just like the Facebook-app.
