Microsoft Skype Inspired From Snapchat to Enormously Redesign Its Look and Feel

MS – Skype is a very famous instant messaging app that provides online text messages with video and audio calling facility. Recent news of San Francisco says that Skype is going to change with a superb looking UI and UX. This drastic change of the App focuses on many features that allow its users to grab photos and videos that are temporarily visible to their connections.

Yes, you are absolutely correct, Skype is making a copy of the record breaking Snapchat, but Sr. Vice President of Engineering and Product at Fuze announce that it depends on the likes and dislikes of Skype users. Skype is considered more on Texting aspect which is even better than the update till now. It is putting more emphasis on Messaging by neglecting the audio and video calling features.

Involving in a group chat? New group chat in Skype allows users to interact with each other and also make use of emojis and stickers to send messages on top of pleasing and more beautiful backgrounds. Modern Skype will provide a way to use animated images from Giphy.

The redesign of Skype includes:

  • Major features that simulate Snapchat’s stories
  • Reaching each other using emoji and stickers
  • Better multitasking features
  • More enhanced group messaging
  • Enabling a user to use animated images from Giphy

Skype is hoping that the fusion of these upcoming features will bring large amount of masses that will use the app everyday. Also, Skype will enable its users to watch videos and play games together as a part of multitasking. Skype is very famous but there are many competitors like FaceTime, Messenger and WhatApp, out of which Facebook Messenger has made a great impact in today’s date. Skype has already targeted Android platform and the next target would be iOS. The desktop users need to wait a little bit more.

Keeping an eye on the powerful makeover, it leaves us wondering that will Skype work on every platform with the ease of performance? While in contradiction will Skype lose its popularity from those people having less memory on their phones? This has left just as a question in reality!

Why Software Testing is necessary

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.”


We all know that IT firms commit a substantial amount of Human and Machine resources for the development of various software products according to requirements specified by Clients. Software Testing is Obligatory because Every human being makes mistakes. Many of these mistakes are minor, but some of them are expensive or dangerous.

In the Digital era, we all have had an experience with software or Application that didn’t work as expected. Software that does not work can have a large impact on A Brand or Company.


  • Financial Loss – Financial loss covers losing users right through to Financial penalties for non-compliance to legal requirements
  • Waste of Time – This impacts more in our busy life, Because if transactions taking a long time to process and didn’t get the right outcome. Also, can include staff not being able to work due to a fault or failure
  • Damage to business reputation – If a company’s product or Application is unable to provide service to their customers due to software problems then the customers will lose confidence or faith from the organization and probably Swift their business elsewhere or will go for the other competitors either.
  • Injury or death – It might sound dramatic but some safety-critical systems or Robotic surgery could result in injuries or deaths if they don’t work properly.

The importance of software testing:

  • Software testing is necessary to specify bugs developed in SDLC’s Development Phase.
  • To prevents the user from facing the problems of usability and gain the confidence about the reliability of the software or application.
  • It’s really required to ensure, that an application shouldn’t drag into any defects because it can be very expensive in the future or in the later stages of the development.

Importance of Unit Testing

“Every large system that works started as a small system that worked”

What is unit testing?

It is a crucial part of Software Testing Life Cycle to test and inspect the individual or stand alone testable code fragments, also called Units of an application for their enduring and immediate effects.

“Unit testing is the method of verifying the smallest piece of testable code against its requirement.” Unit tests are basically written and executed by software developers to make sure that code meets its design and requirements and behaves as expected.

The importance of Unit Test:

 Unit testing is used to prepare strong software units that help to keep code and eliminate the issues in code units. Unit testing is an integral part of the agile software development process.

Unit testing includes bugs in the implementation of programmer and missing parts or flaws of the specification for the unit. The cost of finding a bug before actual coding begins or when the code is first written is greatly lower than the cost of detecting, identifying, and correcting the bug in the later stage of Software development cycle.

Unit testing permits the developer to refactor code or upgrade system libraries at a later date and make sure the module still works correctly.

Advantages of Unit Testing:

  • Decrease error in fresh developed features or reduces bugs when changing the already existing functionality.
  • Reduces Testing cost as bugs are inspected in very early phase.
  • Improves design and allows better reusable of code.
  • Unit Tests, when integrated with build gives the quality of the build as well.
  • Debugging is easy. When a test fails, only the latest changes need to be debugged. 

“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.”

At Kaira Software Pvt. Ltd. we are advanced skill-set holders in software testing, essentially mastering unit testing with the wide array of tools and technologies like PhpUnit, Mockito, JUnit etc.
