Xbox One Skype app getting another update next week

Early next week, the Skype app on Xbox One will be updated to version 1.3.

"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."

Among the improvements is the ability to take a Skype profile picture using Kinect on the Xbox One. Or, you can 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."
