Now you can snap Skype on Xbox One


Good news for Xbox One owners who want to be able to make calls and game at the same time – the most recent update to Skype for the system lets you snap Skype to the side of the screen whilst continuing to play.


IGN reported on the 53mb update, which will be automatically downloaded next time you load up Skype on the console.

The news comes as Microsoft have dropped the requirement for Xbox Live Gold, for which you have to pay a subscription, in order to use a number of apps on the console. Similarly, they also announced that Skype video chat with multiple people is now free – so good news all round!
