Seemingly not too interested in carrying its own project on any longer, messaging app startup company Talko has dropped its plans and headed over to Microsoft, in a buyout announced just recently.

This company purchase by Microsoft is in order to improve Skype and Skype for Business products, programs known to often deliver issues based around hefty battery drainage and poor optimisation for many users. This also marks the death of Talko's own project as we know it, with users being given the opportunity to say good-bye and download past conversations, voice files, text and photos before they are deleted completely.

This isn't the first time Microsoft has bought out a company like this and it's the second purchase in under seven days for this tech giant, here's hoping that the Talko team can work some Skype miracles and give us a stellar program.
