Did you know that if you’re a subscriber to Comcast’s Xfinity Triple Play (Internet, TV and Voice), you can add Skype on Xfinity to make HD video calls from the comfort of your couch? Through Skype on Xfinity, customers are able to:
- Make and receive Skype-to-Skype video and audio calls or send instant messages via Skype on a TV while watching their favorite TV show at the same time, and accept incoming Skype calls during a TV show with the help of Caller ID.
- Import Skype friends into a global address book which can also contain Facebook, Outlook, Gmail and smartphone contacts so you can find which of your friends already use Skype and see when contacts are online and available to talk.
- Have the ability to communicate with the hundreds of millions of connected Skype users around the globe.
And recently, Skype from Xfinity added new features, applications and enhancements to improve the user experience. The fresh Skype 1.2 comes with Dashboard, a sleek, interactive dashboard that that merges customers’ XFINITY services (TV, Voice and Internet) with real-time information about their upcoming day, such as the weather, traffic, scheduled appointments, social media updates and more.
Also included with the Xfinity’s Skype 1.2 update is the Photo Slideshow app, which lets you turn your TV into a giant high quality picture frame, but rather than a single stationary photograph, it will transition through any photos you upload.
