Could Skype be integrated into next gen Xbox

Post by S7 OC on Mon May 28, 2012 2:40 pm


It has been just over six months since Microsoft completed its acquisition of Skype to form a new division at the company. We've seen the release of Skype for Windows Phone recently, but Xbox gamers are eager to hear when the voice and video chat app will make its way to the Xbox 360. Despite already having video chat via Kinect or the Live Vision camera, Skype integration is a highly anticipated feature across the Xbox and all of Microsoft's products.

If I'm not mistaken, I've read somewhere that someone said it was gonna be available in the fall, a long with a web browzer . The same article said I think that Microsoft was trying to get all the apps that current smart tv's have, except amazon prime.

Probably just about Windows 8.

Just keep this in mind when you are using Skype...

Microsoft and Skype set to allow backdoor eavesdropping

http://memeburn.com/2011/07/microsoft-and-skype-set-to-allow-backdoor-eavesdropping/

"Skype and Microsoft have managed to leapfrog common sense and build a backdoor into your favourite VOIP application. It is called Lawful Interception and is part of a new patent which Microsoft filed back in 2009, but is now preparing to unleash itself into our world due to its recent approval."

"Lawful Interception means that government agencies can, without your permission, begin tracking your Skype conversations. Calls can be covertly recorded and used against you in any circumstance. It is legal, it is frightening and it is coming to a voice over IP application near yo
u."
