Skype just turned 10 years old. The company is finally bringing video calling and group calls. Last December, Skype for Business went live for Android devices after several updates on managing conversations, sharing moments, filters to your video messages, Android Wear-integration, and more Material Design elements. This time, integration of Skype and Outlook is improved to make sure you can do more at once and be productive.
Since Microsoft acquired Skype, the software giant has been working hard on the instant messaging platform that’s still widely used especially in businesses and workplaces. If both Outlook and Skype are staples for your everyday work like, you’d be pleased to know that Skype and Outlook are more integrated than ever. This development allows you to be more productive at work, as well as, be able to keep up with family, friends, and colleagues.
On Outlook, you can now easily add a Skype call to a new event. You’ll see a Skype call link in the description of an event when viewing your calendar. This will easily launch Skype when the scheduled time of event or meeting arrives.
You can take advantage of some other improvements on Outlook including navigation and new views. Easier management of both personal and professional life is now possible while calendar now features improved navigation. There’s a two-week calendar, full month view, or three-day view so you can see upcoming events in one glance.
When it comes to navigation of Outlook for Android, it’s more swift now. Some sections like the Mail, Calendar, Files, and People have also been moved to the bottom of the app so they can reached easily by your thumb. Other changes within the app include Contact push, saving files, and seting automatic Replies as requested by frequent users.
