Microsoft updates Skype for Xbox One


May 4, 2013
Microsoft have released an update to the Xbox One version of skype today, it has a number of improvements but one lacking promised feature.


The skype blog details the new features in this version. Microsoft states there is improved chat along with support for push notifications, a longer chat history and alerts for when a new message arrives.

Sadly, it appears that the once promised feature for the Skype app that would have allowed it to enter Snap mode on the right hand side to take a video call while still playing an Xbox One game in the main window has yet to be implemented. There's no word when, or even if, it will be included in an upcoming update.
