Ever wonder how you can get more out of your working day? Wonder not, because Skype is now open for business. The popular messaging platform has received a new update, which feature two new options which are sure to make your work day more productive.
Skype is now open for business, featuring new tool which will make your life a whole lot easier. A while ago, Skype released a cool feature called “Schedule a call”. This option lets you call a friend or a customer at fixed hour, and on a fixed date.
But with the new update, you can do the same thing using your Android-ready device. Moreover, thanks to the new update, you can now schedule the call directly from Outlook, simply by using the Skype application. Moreover, the developers made sure to include other goodies in the latest update such as customizable calendars which you can fill with the most important events.
The second good news concerning skype is that you will now be able to open Office documents directly from the chat window. Let’s say someone sends you a .docx type document containing your schedule for the next two next. Wouldn’t it be neat if Skype had an option so that you could open the doc directly from the chat window and not having to save it and then open it?
You guessed it! Thanks to the latest update, you will be able to open pdf documents, word documents, excel document, ppts and many other formats just by clicking on its icon, directly in the chat window.
If you don’t have Office installed on your computer or device, than the icon has an embedded link, which tells you what you can use or download in order to open the document you’ve just received.
Now, in order to access this new update, you’ve got to follow a few steps. First of all, do make sure that you have Skype installed. Second, head an over to Google Play and search for ‘Skype’. Click on the first link which appears on your screen. This will bring up the app’s download details.
Look under the description: there should be two buttons, one of the entitled “Update” and the other is “Uninstall”. If your device is set to automatically seek and install the latest update, than you should be able to access Skype’s latest content. If not, then hit the “Update” button, wait a couple of secs, hit the “Open” button and enjoy the cool new features designed to accommodate all your business needs.
