Skype Version 1.3 Hitting Xbox One Console “Early Next Week” With New Feedback-Enduced Enhancements

About one month after Skype for Xbox One received contact filtering and other changes, Skype is on the verge of updating the console’s VoIP and messaging app yet again “early next week.”

Version 1.3 will contain “top requested enhancements” by you, the users, that Skype promises will “make your Skype experience on Xbox One even better.”

You will be able to take a Skype profile picture using Kinect on the Xbox One

Among the improvements is the ability to take a Skype profile picture using Kinect on the Xbox One. This should come in handy for those of you who are completely hooked on Microsoft’s camera-toting peripheral. You’ll also be able to opt to use your Xbox One gamerpic for your Skype profile. Addtionally, enhancements to the Kinect’s auto zoom have been made “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 Skype dev team explained. “The camera can adjust and see the entire family, even the little ones.”

As mentioned, Skype 1.3 will be lighting up your Xbox One consoles early next week. Until then, you can keep changing your profile picture every five seconds via other versions of the app.
