Xbox One Skype gets Snap support

Written by David Stellmack

Now Skype and play or watch at the same time

For the multitasks out there, one of the most asked for features of the Xbox One is now becoming a reality. Yes, that’s right Xbox One owners will finally be able to Skype and either play games or watch video content on their Xbox One at the same time by taking advantage of the Xbox One Snap functionality.

With the support of the new Snap functionality it is now possible to launch a game then snap a Skype call into the session. This means that the game or movie will take up the majority of the screen while the Skype call is restricted to just the Snap section. Previously it was only possible to Snap an app/game/movie into an existing Skype call, so the additional of this functionality is a pretty big deal.

In addition to the new Snap support, Skype also gets some bug fixes and tweaks to improve the startup time of the app. All in all a rather big update for the Skype app on Xbox One.
