Why is it free now

We at DicoLab decided to deliver Particitoo for free as Skype (Microsoft) announced its plans to suspend the Skype add-on system by the end of 2013. Add-ons who make use of the Skype network will stop functioning due to this decision.

We strongly believe in the usefulness of our collaboration product and we will offer a successor which will function outside Skype.

Keep yourself informed through our ‘stay updated’ form. All of the Particitoo user will be offered an easy transition-service to switch to the new Particitoo .
