Skype’s new ‘Interviews’ Feature lets you test Cndidates using a real-time code editor


Skype recently introduced a feature designed to cement its place among business users who aren’t as interested in things like emoji reactions or “Stories.” It now supports conducting technical interviews via its service through a new Skype Interviews feature. From a dedicated website , interviewers can test candidates in seven programing languages over Skype using a real-time code editor.

The feature was introduced a few days ago as a technical preview, and currently only works in the browser version of Skype, Microsoft tells us.

Of course, there are already a number of solutions for conducting interviews with remote technical talent on the market, like HackerRank, Codility, Interview Zen, CoderPad, Remoteinterview.io, HireVue’s CodeVue (née CodeEval), and others.

But the benefit to using Skype is the platform’s ubiquity, which makes it a regular tool for doing remote video falls of any kind. Bundling in an interview testing feature within Skype could speed up the interview process, as subjects won’t have to switch to a different tool to complete the technical screening.

Skype Interviews instead lets you actually have the video call still displayed on top of the code editor in either Microsoft Edge or the Google Chrome (ver. 32+) web browser window. That way, the interviewer can provide the instructions and feedback as the candidate performs the tests.
