Skype turns into Snapchat

Skype’s updated app provides us with a Snapchat makeover. It seems that every social media platform is challenging Snapchat and yet again we have an another challenger on the scene. Skype has just implemented a Snapchat style makeover on their mobile phone app.

Microsoft has confirmed that the app has been fully rebuilt to allow users to have all features within the Skype app. The President of Skype confirmed that they had implemented the new changes as users were having to switch between apps for certain features such as sending photos whilst being on a video call.

The great thing is that the new Skype app can be used to a professional level as well as for social purposes. It seems that Microsoft has still kept its look and touch on the Skype App. Skype will also be introducing a new highlights feature that’s a lot like Snapchat stories. Personally, we think it’s a great idea as a new look and feel to the app was required by Skype. Well done Skype, it’s not a bad start towards the future. Please note Android users will be the first to get the updated Skype app, followed by the iPhone, Windows, and Mac.
