  1. Skype Notification on the Xbox One


    First and for most, I'm simply tired of dealing with this *** for far too long. I communicate with the people I play with through Skype. EVERY TIME I GET A MESSAGE OR A CALL ON SKYPE, IT NOTIFIES ME OVER AND OVER! I just got back from losing a tournament
    I was playing in because the Skype notification wouldn't stop playing and popping up and distracted me, so thanks alot Microsoft!

    One message or call = UNLIMITED NOTIFICATIONS! I don't want to disable my notifications for Skype because I WANT to be notified, but not SPAMMED with notifications, there's a reason why I don't bother signing up for the *** newsletter from Xbox.

    How can I fix this issue I've been having ever since I started using Skype for my X1?! And please, you truly do not understand my frustration on this matter, so don't bother sympathizing like every customer support does.

    :)

  2. Not Getting Skype Notifications

    Hi Guys,

    Perhaps this is just the way skype works on xbox one, but I have the setting to receive Skype notifications turns on, but I only ever get them while im in the app fullscreen. Meaning if I come home, turn my xbox on and start playing a game and someone tries
    to call me on skype, I do not get a notification on the xbox.

    Must I open skype each time I turn on the console to receive notifications?

    Under Settings > Preferences I have Show Notifications: On, Skype: On, Message: On, Party: on, Gaming and System: On.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    How do I sign out of Skype?

    There is no option to sign out of Skype, unless you sign out from your Xbox account on the console directly. However, you can turn off Skype notifications and set your status to “Invisible.” Here’s how:

    1. Open Skype on your Xbox One.
    2. Open your profile and set your status to Invisible.
    3. In Skype, go to Settings and choose Don’t show notifications.
    4. Go back to your Home screen.
    5. Press the Menu button on your controller.
    6. Select Settings.
    7. Go to Preferences, and then clear the Show Skype notifications check box.

    Multiple Skype accounts on Xbox One?

    @Hassassinade: You are right, it's not possible to sign out, but at least come very close to that by switching online status to "Invisible" and disabling notifications. Details here:

    Notifications aka Toast pop up Alerts Not working

    So (just so we're clear), you're saying that you have notifications for Skype in the Notifications app, but that you didn't see a toast for them when they arrived? And you weren't running Skype at the time the messages arrived?

    Skype Question

    G'day Penguin! Let's get this Skype stuff sorted out. =)

    First off, Skype is not currently able to snap into the right column. You can snap other apps while talking on Skype though.

    As for the notifications, let's make sure everything is enabled in your console's settings. From the Settings menu, select Preferences, and add a check mark to the Show Skype notifications option.

    Are your call notifications not coming through at all, or have you only noticed this behavior in a particular app or game?

    Not getting Skype Notifications

    I'm also having this issue. I did not get the Skype notifications when I turn on the xbox one when I got home. However, I got the email notification.

    I hope this is fix very soon (including being able to listen to voice messages).
