Skype has been busy lately, launching new features to make it easier for users on mobile devices. Having only recently launched group video calls on its mobile apps, it is now allowing users to schedule calls on their android app.
Skype is making it easier for users to be productive from their mobile devices, and one of the ways it is doing so is allowing them to schedule calls in their mobile app. The feature is currently only available on Android devices, but it is a real time-saver.
All one has to do is select the user to schedule a call with and then select to schedule a call with them. The time of your scheduled call will then be added to your calendar. As a Microsoft product, Skype is designed to work perfectly with Outlook, but you can use whichever calendar you choose.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
To get this feature, all you have to do is update to the latest Skype for Android app – it really is that simple. However, this is not the only thing you will get with the update. You will also be able to reference files from other Office products within your Skype conversations. Say you have a specific Excel spreadsheet that you want to discuss – you can now link to the file in your conversation on chat and you and other participants can view and open the file itself.
The inclusion of these features follow integration with Slack a few weeks ago as well – a welcome addition for those who use Slack for their day-to-day work.
