Microsoft is rolling out an update today to its Skype Qik video messaging app for Android, which adds some new video effects that can be applied for some fun interaction with friends.

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.

Android users can tap the magic wand in the viewfinder window to check all of the new Skype Qik video effects. The 1.5 update is not yet available in the Google Play Store but it should roll out sometime today.
