    No mention of Skype premium being a one time promotion. So seams to reason it is part of Live Gold.

    Well

    IT

    IS

    NOT

    Kinda misleading, especially when you weren't told it was a one time deal.

    Thanks for communicating such trivial information.

    :)

  2. PARTY CHAT ISSUES !!!

    My bad:

    "With your Xbox One and an Xbox Live Gold membership, you can get group video calling, a premium Skype experience, at no additional cost."

    Game DVR, Skype and TV Guide are Gold Only

    To point out something, Skype is free on other platforms but.... If you wish to do Group Skype video calls that is now in a payed premium model of Skype. Now I believe the X1 Skype allows you to Skype Group vid calls as long as you have gold, which is also
    for multiplayer and other things. So as I don't have Skype premium normally if I need to do this ill use the X1 and take advantage of that being included in my Multiplayer subscription.

    Xbox One and Skype lack of telling you you don't get Skype premium with GOLD

    Turns out Skype Premium is no more. But I still got an email to renew my Skype Premium. Looks like the multi-video chat is part of the free Skype now.
