Skype today updated its Xbox One app with two new features and a slew of bug fixes, but just like the last update, this one still doesn’t let you use Skype while playing games. The new version is rolling out gradually, so don’t fret if you don’t see it on your console just yet.


You can now take a Skype profile picture using Kinect or set it to match your Xbox One gamerpic. The auto zoom has been enhanced to better identify people in the picture, especially when there are multiple people in the room, allowing the Kinect camera to adjust and see everyone. Hopefully the next version will start to include the big new features Xbox users have been waiting for since launch.
