This year Skype has really got into Halloween topic and decided to give its users tricks and tips.
Everybody has already seen the mysterious smileys ‘dwelling’ in Skype – the pumpkin, the ghost, the witch, the vampire and the skeleton.
As Halloween draws closer, the messaging app is adding new little things and offering tips. Are you looking forward to the mystical night? Then these tips from Skype are for you.
Do the names of your contacts seem boring? Then just go and rename them. Let John Smith become ‘Bloody Ghost’. No harm, just fun.
Halloween style filters
Change the settings of your web-cam to let Halloween filter switch on when you make video calls. Adjust your image to make yourself look spooky to scare your friends. Select Video settings and go ahead.
Profile text upside down
There are some quite interesting software tools that will come to your aid, should you want to turn a contact’s name upside down. Do a google search for text flipping software and have fun.
Enjoy the new Skype holiday features but do not take these practical jokes too far. Happy Halloween!
