Why has Skype become so much harder to use?

I loved Skype on Windows 7. Then friends and relatives of mine were forced, FORCED, to use (dogs vomit) Windows 8, for which, for some reason, Skype decided to remake a brand new and similarly uncomprehensible/unfamiliar interface. Then, I bought my Samsung SmartPhone, for which, I discovered, Skype created yet ANOTHER non-familiar interface. Is this progress, or is it experimentation on guinea pigs to see how for they can push us before we’ll no longer put up with their **it?

Thank goodness, Skype still works on iPhone and iPad (I do not use them but other of my friends and family do) as well as on Windows and Droid. And yet… and YET… you cannot video conference on smartphones on Skype except "1 to 1"; for "3 or more" you must use voice only on smartphones, or, for video, be on laptops.

Why has Skype become so behind / so much harder to use?
