Skype now has the “Together Mode” option as announced by Microsoft. With the latest update of the video calling app, this was one of the only prominent features available. This new option might become game-changing for the company as it will offer a video calling experience that no other platform does.
About the “Together Mode” feature
This new feature aims to bridge the gap between virtual and physical meetings. Also, with the new feature, users will connect naturally as if they are having a meeting in the same physical space. Unlike the traditional grid format of meetings, with “Together Mode,” skype will use what they call the same physical space. This will help in reducing meeting fatigue and make them feel more real and connective.
Some other features that are also going to elevate the user experience of Skype are the Large mode grid feature. It will enable viewing everyone’s video stream at the same time and also add many new backgrounds and categories. There is also a new option to add users on a Skype call using their phone number.
