Microsoft continues to struggle for users of messaging applications to use Skype as one more. The problem is that Microsoft guys have taken a long time to adapt their application to become a real platform. In addition Skype has always been associated with calls and video calls, not text messages, although the usual users of the calls make regular use of this platform to communicate. The latest update released by the company does not show a complete redesign of the application, with a cleaner interface, a design that you can customize by modifying the background color provided by the application.

The bots take a major role in this new update of Skype, bots that will allow us to quickly weather, conduct surveys, search Bing and share results, search restaurants, movies, images …access different chats, take captures with the camera and add stikers or text to customize them.

Also added a new option whose operation is very similar to the stories of Snapchat, where users can post pictures or videos and decorate with texts, emojis and others to share them later with our friends.

Microsoft has gotten a little bit of everything, and just like it has copied the Instagram stories, it has also been inspired by Facebook to offer its reactions. At the moment Microsoft has just released this update, an update that if it is not yet available at the time of reading this article will be in a few hours. Skype is available for download for free
