We love the idea that with the right tools, you can transport yourself into an entirely different reality, and can connect with new people and experiences, without needing to physically be there.
This is why, in partnership with Marvel, we are thrilled to introduce a foray into the mystical world of Doctor Stephen Strange, the newest Marvel Super Hero.
Add the Doctor Strange Bot to your Skype contacts
If you are based in the United States, you can start your journey by adding the Doctor Strange bot from the bot directory in your Skype App, and find out if you have what it takes to become Doctor Strange’s newest personal assistant. In case you’ve missed it, bots are intelligent helpers that you can add like a regular contact on Skype and chat with to accomplish everyday tasks or play games. Simply click on the bot icon or search “Doctor Strange” on Skype to get started.
Writer/director of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Scott Derrickson, sat down with Geek and Sundry’s Amy Dallen and our Bot at the press junket to see if he had what it takes to become Doctor Strange’s assistant. Check out the exclusive highlights below.
Check out the new emoticons
In addition to the Bot, we’ve also added a new set of Doctor Strange emoticons—inspired by some of the movie’s most iconic characters like Kaecilius and the Ancient One—that will help you take your Skype game to the next dimension. Look out for more content, which will be added in the next few weeks!
To see these new updates as they begin to roll out today, make sure you’re on the latest Skype app for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, or Web. To learn more about bots or our new emoticons, please visit our Skype FAQ and Skype Bots feature page. Remember to check out Marvel’s Doctor Strange in theaters tomorrow!
As Doctor Strange would say… Are you up to the challenge?
