If you have an off-site technical interview coming up, the last thing you want to be thinking about is how the technology you will be using will stand up.

Skype has launched a new preview feature which aims to helps to conduct technical interviews more seamlessly.

Currently, handling technical interviews might requires two apps — one for the call and a separate code editor. There are several apps that help conduct remote technical interviews. The new feature enables to place a video call on top of a code editor. In other words, interviewers and their prospective candidates do not have to switch between two applications.

Skype says the editor, on its Skype.com web application, currently supports seven languages – C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python and Ruby. Additionally, it also runs on Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browsers, the latter at version 32 or above. The editor also includes built-in syntax highlighting.

All users need to do is visit the Skype Interviews website, click on ‘Start interview,. Once both participants follow the unique link sent out, the interview can begin.

It is worth noting that there are plenty of tools on the market which offers a similar kind of capability. HackerRank, a technical recruiter based in Palo Alto, California, is one example. The company adds a gamification element whereby programmers can practice different elements. They can also face off against fellow users, and ultimately secure jobs.

Skype has been undergoing something of a revamp in recent weeks. The new interface “delivers most of the great features of [Skype’s] next generation mobile experience. But, is specifically designed with desktop in mind,” as Microsoft editor Todd VanderArk put it in a blog post.
