New features in Skype Preview for Android and iOS

- Integrated camera: quickly swipe to capture those precious moments. Make them your own by adding emoticons, stickers and annotations, then promptly share them in the chat.
- Messaging reactions: respond to any message from your contacts with multiple reactions. Reactions can be used for any purpose: voting, showing excitement, or just for fun.
- Find panel: easily find and share links, news, sports results, restaurants, the weather, videos and more without leaving the app. No more switching back and forth between apps; we’re making it easy to bring the content you care about to the conversations that matter.
