Skype releases first update for Xbox One app, adds synced chats

PanARMENIAN.Net - Skype released the first update for its Xbox One app, adding new features and squashing a bunch of bugs. The new version is rolling out gradually, The Next Web reports.

First and foremost, Skype says it has improved the chat component. For those using Skype on computer, phone, or tablet as well as Xbox One, the app should now keep the conversations in sync. The Microsoft-owned company says it has reduced the number of missed messages “to make your chat experience even better.”

Chat is not only synchronized but it also includes push notifications, alerting the user when a new message arrives. Furthermore, the Xbox One app also provides a longer chat history: up to 1,000 messages, rather than just the past seven days.

Next up, contact filtering now lets the users see who is online. This means they finally don’t have to scroll through the entire contacts list to find someone to chat with.

Remaining new features include a first time tutorial for how to use video calling and chatting in the living room, as well as new emoticons based on characters from Marvel’s Captain America. Last but not least, Skype says it has addressed the most pressing problems since releasing the console’s launch in November, TNW says.
