Hello Skype and Kinect users, I just got a new Kinect and i love it. There's just one thing that bothers me. NO SKYPE! I really want it. I'm tired of turning on my Windows 7 PC and going on Skype. I want Video Chat Now!

This is the same question I just sent to xbox. Does anyone know if there is a way to make it work?

Unbelievable noone has answered that in these months.

If this is a support network I think this is not working as real support, just ignoring the posts.

I am wondering what the timing is for Skype to appear on XBox? There doesn't seem to be much technical support for this subject, so far. Here's another chance MS.

Also, please Skype make the Xbox version as awesome as Video Kinect!  Having the camera follow the person speaking around the room is unbelievably awesome.

Video calls to PC was an established functionality on XBOX and now it's broken. It would be great to hear some acknowledgement/feedback from Microsoft regarding this issue.

I'm extremely disappointed with this response. I've been a fan of windows for my entire life. I was even a microsoft developer for 12 years. However, Microsoft is dropping the ball and I'm finding it extremely difficult to continue my loyalty.


1. Windows 8 == failure (Vista all over)

2. Love the tablet but can't justify the cost (Bought Android which is equally as good for 1/2-1/3 the price)

3. Love the phone and xbox integration

4. Extremely pissed off that a multi billion dollar company can't answer a simple question and just leave everyone asking questions that go unanswered.


I may just end up buying sony and going android. I have no more loyalty and I have done nothing but stick up for you for years.
