Skype and Space Jam: A New Legacy team up to make your next video call a slam dunk ​

28/06/2021 | Skype Blogs | Space Jam: A New Legacy

We’re teaming up with the all-new live-action/animation film Space Jam: A New Legacy to make your next video call a total blast. As part of an epic partnership between Microsoft and Warner Bros., Skype is rolling out Animated Emoticons, Animated Backgrounds, and Super Reactions featuring basketball champion and global icon LeBron James and the classic Looney Tunes line-up of characters — and you won’t find these exciting video call and messaging features anywhere else.

We’ve expanded our emoticon collection to include a talented roster of 7 new characters: Express shock with a jaw-dropping Daffy Duck, celebrate with Speedy Gonzales, or say, “What’s up Doc?” with Bugs Bunny. Tell a friend “I’ve got this!” with confident Lola Bunny, show strength with Granny in a ninja pose, use Tweety to show surprise, or express that you’re ready for a challenge with LeBron James flying through the air. Whatever your emotion, give our new emoticon collection a shot on your next Skype call or chat.

Ever wish all your video calls could be a slam dunk? We’re making it happen! With our newest Super Reaction, LeBron James leaps across your screen, triggering an epic explosion of thumbs-up emoticons. Try it out next time you want to send a friend, family member, or colleague a sign of approval on a video call and watch their eyes light up. (LeBron’s our starting line-up but keep an eye out for more themed Super Reactions landing soon.)
