Skype for the Mac got a major update in the past week, and with it, people have questions, and Microsoft made it a point to update users on it. That, plus new conferences in 2015, make Microsoft a very happening place to follow as the year ends and 2015 starts soon enough for many.
One of the major updates that users who got the new Skype for Mac 7.0 update, was the planned changes to the overall visual interface. One feature that wasn’t talked about, ws instant message formatting, and this is one that Microsoft made it a point to bring out for all.
Instant Message Formatting
Skype went into a lot of details to talk about the new Instant Message Formatting in the new Skype for Mac 7.0. Users can customize the way the fronts look in Skype, but now the latest updates allow users to use light formatting for firneds to see in messages. This will make it easier to read, and highlight certain things if you want to get the information across.
Users can place asterisks around the words in the messages, and Skype with emphasize that in new ways. In addition to that, users can use italics to emphasize that way, and wrap words around certain phrases to get the point across. Lastly, users can show off wrapping of word code along with strikethrough formatting in their instant messages via various commands in the new Skype for Mac 7.0.
