Those partaking in a coding job interview through a video call can show off their skills on Skype's new code editor feature

Remote interviews have been made easier with the introduction of reliable communication on the internet. An interviewer and interviewee can seamlessly have a conversation almost as though they were in the same room. However, coding jobs require the potential employee to show their process to demonstrate how well they’d do on the job. Microsoft wanted to make this easier by including a code editor the interviewer and interviewee can both view and work on during a Skype call.

The video call works a little differently, as it takes place in a code editor. Both parties can continue to see one another in the upper right section of the screen. The code editor works with seven programming languages: C, C++, C#, Java, Javascript, Python and Ruby.

For now, this code editor feature only works through the Microsoft Edge or Chrome browser on Skype.com, and not on the Skype app.
