Tyler Oakley is a social media megastar, vlogging legend, and member of an extremely enviable squad. It’s not always easy for him to keep tabs on everyone with his travel, tours, and other commitments, so we wanted to know how he catches up with his crew.
Tyler’s been a friend of Skype for years now and we all feel like we know him personally. The big laugh, zany antics, and lovable quality make us feel like we’re part of his friend circle ourselves. So obviously we were excited to partner with him again to see how a post-trip debrief with his clique went down. (But first, sending out a Skype Highlight to let his fans know he’s back home—what a thoughtful celeb!)
He caught up with Nathan Zed (honestly, it’s not every day you’re wearing the t-shirt of the friend you’re talking with over Skype) and the musical duo Superfruit to plan the night ahead, since everyone is back in town. Korey Kuhl and Tyler plan their next vid (with some in-call reactions along the way), and a call with Mom and Dad ended in a quick chat with the Skyscanner bot to plan a trip for them to visit L.A.
We don’t want to give it all away (watch the video to see!) but needless to say it was an epic catch-up sesh, and the new Skype features made it that much better. We rebuilt our platform from the ground up so that interactive and personalized conversations just like these can take place easily and more often, keeping all of you in touch with the people you love most.
You can do everything from sharing photos, messages, emoticons, and in real-time, to using bots to plan trips, buy tickers, or find recipes, as well as adding Skype Highlights to keep your friends up to date with anything and everything that’s going on in your world.
