Skype has introduced a new feature called TwinCam, which enables users to add a second camera feed to their video calls. With this feature, you can connect a secondary camera, such as your phone, to the video call, whose primary camera could be your webcam. Hence, you can use your main camera to focus on yourself while showing other things simultaneously.

You might be wondering – how will this feature add up to our lives? Well, this feature can be quite handy. For example, educators should remain visible to students while showing close-ups of objects or demonstrations. Tech support can troubleshoot more clearly by sharing both their screen and face. While traveling, viewers can enjoy a wider perspective of the surroundings while the presenter remains visible.

Microsoft stated that connecting your secondary camera as TwinCam during a Skype call on your desktop is easy. Simply scan a QR code from your mobile device. All you need is to ensure you have the latest version of Skype Insider on both desktop and mobile for the best TwinCam experience.

Additionally, the Stacked Media Albums feature for 2+ photos and videos adds a visually appealing element to chats, providing a sleek and organized way to share multiple photos and videos. The themed borders and consistent aesthetics across platforms contribute to an enhanced visual storytelling experience within Skype.
