Ready to feel the force with Skype?

Skype announces the launch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi–themed emoticons

Sometimes, there's no better way to express your frustration than with a proper Wookie roar. With the latest update to Skype, now you can! Skype has just rolled out ten new emoticons based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so you can now send BB-8, Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, and even an adorable porg to your friends while you're chatting.

You'll find them at the top of your emoticons picker, so go ahead and send away! They're all animated so leave your cursor on the emoticon for a minute to see how they move.  If you're using Skype for mobile, there's also a Masks feature that lets you add a Star Wars themed virtual helmet onto yourself of a friend for photos and videos. 

The animated masks move with your face, so you can nod or shake your head as a Stormtrooper or Kylo Ren. It seems this feature has only just been released to our region, so you'll have to update your Skype mobile app to access them. Now go have some fun!
