Skype wants to strengthen conversations with four new features, now in testing

It seems that from Skype they do not want to feel displaced in the face of the wave of new features that other communication platforms are receiving in recent times with the aim of providing diversion capabilities while being in contact with other users. In this sense, the service itself has presented four new features, which are present through Skype Preview for Android and iOS, or in other words, it wants to have a group of users who test the new features before making them available from other users through a new stable version.

The four new features are: Call Reactions, Integrated Camera, Messenger Reactions, and Search Panel. About the reactions on callsBasically, what is offered is the possibility of adding emoticons, texts and photos in real time to the video conversations that are being held, either with individual contacts or even with groups of contacts.

According to the integrated camera, Skype offers the possibility of capturing precious moments and then incorporating emoticons, stickers and annotations to bring these photos to chat conversations. As for the messenger reactionsThis is a graphical way of responding to chat conversations, working to some extent on the reactions available on Facebook for posts, and for a few days also for comments, but targeted at specific messages in conversations.

And finally we have the search panel with which to facilitate finding and sharing links, news, restaurants, videos, as well as other content, with family and friends, without leaving the application. Perhaps this feature will make Skype somewhat like a mobile social network.

From Skype it is noted that new improvements and features are also on the way without specifying anything about it, so it intends to maintain the intrigue while the competing services continue to follow its heels.

For those who dare to try the trial versions, they can download Skype Preview for Android from the Google Play Store, and in the case of iOS, they must request to become Skype Insider for iOS and, if selected, receive by email the link they need so they can have this version in tests.
