Skype Qik app update adds new video effects based on Minecraft and more

One of the effects turns a person's face into a Minecraft version of themselves. Microsoft offers up the details about this Skype Qik 1.5 version update:

We created 8 new effects you can use while recording your videos to make them more fun and playful. Once you open the viewfinder, you can select an effect to apply to your video. You can even switch from one to another while you're recording to include multiple effects in one video message. Choose from favorites like mirror, x-ray and Minecraft (a staff favorite that makes you look 8-bit) or go crazy with hearts or snow.

iPhone users can tap the magic wand in the viewfinder window to check all of the new Skype Qik video effects.
