Skout’s done it again; we’ve got a new upgrade for you. What does this mean? Lot’s of cool new stuff!
First and foremost you’ll notice an all-new profile! We’ve made the profile view more streamlined to highlight the things you need to know. Across the top you can see the persons name, age, location and whether or not they are online making it super easy to connect.
The left side of the profile now shows you the 4-1-1 including their backstage rating, and across the bottom you can wink or favorite them see their buzz and check out all their info. Want to start up a chat, hit the big green chat button and you are good to go.
We’ve also updated the profile pictures, you can now have seven, so there’s no more having to choose between the picture of you skydiving or the picture of you surfing that monstrous barrel, you can have them both. Once you’ve got seven profile pictures chosen the rest of your images will hangout in backstage where others can see them and award stars for your collection. Below the profile pics you can see your buzz pictures and updates. Now’s there’s 3 places to upload pictures, Public Profile, Backstage and Buzz!
So what are you waiting for? Upgrade today!
Sometimes in today’s world of texting, emailing and chatting I find myself missing the sound of someone’s voice. There are just certain things that get lost when you type them. You know like sarcasm, and irony, or just pure happiness. Sure you can put it in italics or add a lot of exclamation points but it’s not the same as hearing the tone and inflection of a person’s voice.
Here at Skout we thought you might feel the same way, somethings are just better spoken. So today we are super excited to announce our newest feature Push to Talk!
When you’re in a chat with someone and only voice will do, click on the microphone at the bottom right…
Then, just hold your finger on the Hold to Talk button and record away, 10 seconds, 20 seconds up to 30 seconds. Leave a message for someone you’ve been chatting with. When you’re finished and want to go back to typing just click the keyboard and you’re set!
Upgrade Skout today in the Google Play and iTunes stores!
