This message, "You have been signed out of Skype, please sign into an Xbox account to use Skype." has been coming up whenever I've been trying to sign into Skype on the Xbox One...Not sure what happened but all it's giving me is the "Sign in" button, but all it does is just loop me back to the same message... Please help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This took me forever to work out but what you need to do is merge your xbox live account and skype account. You can't do it on the Xbox because of the loop so you have to do it on your PC or Laptop.
If you have Windows 7 just follow these directions:
If you have windows 8 just follow these directions:
I hope this works for all of you and merges your accounts properly because it was doing my head in. It worked for me and then I could just sign straight into my Skype on Xbox One.
You can do the Microsoft-Skype account merge in the Skype for Xbox One app as well. if you are more comfortable with using a PC keyboard you can also do the merging by signing in with your Microsoft account at www.skype.com - If your Microsoft account hasn't been merged yet you will then be guided through the account merging process.
Im having the issue as well. It was working well for me yesterday (2/16/14) but now im stuck in the sign in loop. I hav uninstalled the app, unlinked and re-linked my live acct. but im not getting anywhere. According to the live services the app is up and running. Any suggestions?
I've also got this issue. I've tried the solution and linked my microsoft account but i'm still stuck in the sign in loop.
I tried linking and unlinking and re-linking accounts, creating a new skype account and linking that and still no luck. If I use my partners gamertag to sign in her skype account logs in no problem.
I've made sure all my privacy settings are correct on xbox one and not sure what else to try.
What fixed it for me was a hard reset of my xbox. Hold the power button down for about 10 seconds and restart it.
