Skype gets Bollywood Mojis and emoticons in the latest update

Skype has added a bunch of Bollywood inspired Mojis and emoticons to spice up your chats. The video and calling service from Microsoft has partnered with Yash Raj Films and ErosNow, the on-demand entertainment platform of Eros International, to develop custom Mojis for Skype users.


Skype will bring content from movies such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, RA one, Dhoom 2 & 3, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Devdas, and many more. The Bollywood Mojis will allow Skype users to reply to messages with mojis featuring Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma and many others. Mojis that were first launched last month are short movie and TV clips in the form of text message.

Besides Mojis, the latest update also adds  emoticons highlighting Indian cuisines, festivals, expressions and culture. Both Bollywood Mojis and emoticons will be available worldwide, in the featured tab of the emoticon picker in Skype. The features are available on Windows desktop, Mac, iOS, Android, or Skype for Web.
