They can tap on the reaction icon that exists next to the message or the video call during the time of the conversation.
GSMArena stated that the main screen of the Skype 8.0 has three tabs. The key one must be in the center where the users' chats will reside. Another tab will exist on the left side and it is called Highlights, which is a rip-off of the stories feature from the Snapchat. It helps the users to upload their images and videos to create the highlight reel of the day.
The users can share these images and videos later with their friends. The tab on the right side is called Capture and it is another important Snapchat rip-off. The users can take their own pictures here that can be added to the Highlights reel or can be sent to the important contacts. An editing tool also exists here that helps to draw or add stickers and this reveals that Skype 8.0 is ready to explore many features.
