Skype for Xbox One

Today sees the launch of the Xbox One around the world, which is another great landmark in my career. There’s plenty written about the road from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and there are plenty of reviews for you to read (my favourite is the Polygon review, which looks amazing in addition to being balanced, honest, and accurate), so I won’t jabber on about it for long. However, Xbox One brings to the living room not just gaming, but entertainment in general with HDMI pass-through for watching your TV through your Xbox, the amazing Skype client, and much more.

After a successful time with the Skype for Windows Phone team launching Skype on Windows Phone 8, I am totally stoked to be part of the team that has launch Skype for Xbox One and to be part of the launch of Xbox One in general and I’m really proud to have the “One Launch Team 2013″ watermark on my Xbox Live profile (which you can see in the image above). I think we’ve got an excellent launch product that the whole team are really proud of. As always, there’s plenty more to come!

We’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences over on the Skype Community.
