    Snapped skype app and camera tracking


    Skype for Xone recently received an update that allows it to be snapped while gaming.

    Also, skype uses kinect's tracking feature for video chats to track your moves and keep the camera frame on you.

    Does this feature also work while snapped?

    P.S. I don't have an Xone.

    :)

    Anyone else just waiting for a reason to buy a Kinect?

    I use it.

    Helpful when netflix prompts you if your still there. Also being able to record things and play is amazing I've been able to record some epic boss fights from sunset and Titanfall in the nick of time.

    The fitness app is pretty cool as it tracks your movements and coach's you on form.

    Saying xbox snap is also handy as well. I imagine when they integrate Cortana, the kinect feature will start to hit its stride.

    Also skype is sweet with the camera follows the person around.

    I have the same problem. I read this in another forum: "open skype app in snapped mode and after chose full screen" is a temporary fix.

    Snapped skype app and camera tracking

    Hi,

    When snapped, Kinect video tracking won't not work. Hope this is something that will be improved in future.

    Can't Snap Skype.....

    Currently Skype for Xbox One doesn't support snapping. Check the section "I’m missing a feature in Skype for Xbox One. Where is it?" in the FAQ here:

    support.xbox.com/.../skype-faq

    You can snap other apps like IE, Music and Video to the running Skype app though.

    Skype/Games/Other Apps Refuse to open or crash shortly after

    Did you try starting the Skype app in snapped mode as described in
    support.xbox.com/.../multitask-with-snap
    ?

    Members of the Skype Community reported that using this workaround they were able to start Skype and also later on switch to full screen mode and the app continued to work.

    Can I use snap with Skype?

    The initial release of Skype for Xbox One does not support snapping Skype to another running application; however, we are working to release this in a future update.

    There is actual date to my knowledge.

    Native support for streaming of XBOX ONE S games (4k and others) on youtube and other apps

    It is. To stream on Xbox one to twitch simply launch the Twitch app or install it first then sign in then head over to broadcast, the app should snap over to the right side of your screen then you can set it up from there. For the kinect depending on what
    you mean by "add video" it's basically a camera and a mic you can add yourself to your Upload studio projects and Skype.
