What the hack happened to skype??

Does anybody know why Skype is acting "suspicious"?

So, it has been a long time since the last time I used Skype, probably 5 years or so.
And today I visited Skype website, and the website is in Chinese. Chinese character all over the place.
also, I noticed that the website URL is "http://skype.gmw.cn"

Did Skype now owned by a Chinese company?
and the android app link is not directing me to Playstore or any app store but gives me the .apk files directly from the download link….
