Following an acquisition by Microsoft in 2011, Skype's logo was changed to a metro-style mark in 2012 and the foreground was slightly altered, removing the gradient. In the same year, Skype launched its own app on Windows 8 (app now defunct). Recently, in version 2, this logo appeared as the animation when you sign in only lacking the "™" symbol. There is Windows 10 version that it was released in the Anniversary Update.
To coincide with the rest of the Microsoft products, the Skype logo was simplified to reflect the design language of the Office 365 applications and portray continuity throughout the brand.
On November 29, 2018, Microsoft announced that Office 365's programs will have a complete change. A new icon was unveiled on August 16, 2019, with the "Skype" name no longer being used.
