Frankenstein, the Mummy, and Dracula come to Skype this Halloween

This Halloween, Skype has partnered with the iconic Hammer to bring some of your favorite Halloween characters, including the Mummy, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, and Dracula, to Skype. With our new Hammer Halloween-themed emoticons, stickers, and reactions, you can bring the spirit of Halloween to your Skype chats and Highlights.


Beware! You might find some werewolves, vampires, and zombies haunting your emoticon picker this month! Some of Halloween’s most iconic horror icons have taken over the “Featured” section of your emoticon picker—so you can send some ghostly fun to your friends and family on Skype.

Images displays the variety of Halloween emoticons available under the Featured section of the emoticon picker.


Love the photo your friend shared of her Halloween costume? Why not say it with a web heart reaction! The spirit of Halloween has made its way to our reactions, so now you can like, love, and laugh (and more) with a bit of Halloween spirit.

Here at Skype, we love holidays and helping loved ones share special moments with each other even when they’re apart. We’ve had so much fun bringing the spirt of Halloween to Skype with Hammer Films. We hope you enjoy sharing your favorite Halloween moments with your loved ones on Skype.
