Xbox One Skype now offers a new Snap experience

A update to Skype on Xbox One now enables users to Snap a Skype voice or audio call into other experiences, be that gaming, movies or more, Microsoft has announced.

This means you can now launch a game of Forza 5 or Ryse, then Snap a Skype call into the session. Similarly you could be watching a movie and choose to Snap a Skype chat to the screen. All the while the game or movie remains the primary experience, taking up the majority of screen space.

It was previously only possible to Snap an app/game/movie into an existing Skype call.
