Qik has announced that the mobile video sharing service will be shutting down on April 30, 2014. All Qik mobile phone applications will cease to exist once the shutdown occurs, and updates along with application store offerings will be unavailable. Since the service has been acquired and implemented by Skype, which is owned by Microsoft, users of Qik are expected to migrate over to Skype. Current Qik users will be able to use Skype for their audio and video calling, instant messaging, and video messaging after the Qik service service shuts down. Videos that are stored within Qik can be downloaded from the user dashboard and can then be backed up to any local or cloud storage device.
Those who have already paid for the premium version of Qik will receive a refund for any amounts that have already been paid after April 30, 2014.
