Skype testing real time code editor feature for Skype.com

Microsoft is currently working on a real time code editor for its Skype.com. The feature will allow people to conduct coding and technical interview without having to switch between a Skype call and code editing application.

This feature provides users with assistance in the form of video call on top of the code editor.The feature currently works with Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browsers meaning users would need access to only Skype.com on the above browsers.

The editor supports seven programming languages like C, C++, C#, java, Javascript, Python and Ruby. A real time execution feature will be included in the coming updates. However for this feature to work in the Browsers the default language needs to be set to English only.

Users would need to visit Skype.com/interviews and click on “Start interview” and will be provided with a unique link that can be accessed by a participant. During the interview programming languages can also be changed by clicking the button which is found on the upper left hand side of the screen. The video call is started once you click on “Start Video Interview” Button.
