We’re continuing to roll out updates to the Skype app on Xbox One*, with version 1.3 available early next week. As you saw last month, we continue to listen to your feedback and to focus on your top requested enhancements that make your Skype experience on Xbox One even better.
We know that your Skype profile picture says a lot about you, so with this release you’ll now be able to take a Skype profile picture using Kinect on your Xbox One. Or, if you prefer your Xbox One gamerpic, you can now also use that in your Skype profile.
We’ve also worked with the Xbox and Kinect team to bring enhancements to auto zoom so the people on the other end of the video call are getting the best possible picture experience. We found ways to better identify people in the picture, especially when there are multiple people in the room. The camera can adjust and see the entire family, even the little ones.
We even managed to swat some more of those pesky bugs.
Don’t forget to visit the Skype Community if you have any questions. And as always, find us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates and share your thoughts. We look forward to hearing from you!
*Skype for Xbox One requires a paid Xbox Live Gold membership (sold separately).
