First update for Skype for Xbox One includes synced chats, push notifications

The first update for Skype for Xbox One is available, and it brings an improved chat experience, including synced chats if you jump between using Skype on your PC to your phone and your living room.

Push notifications also are available, alerting you when a new message arrives, and providing a longer chat history of up to 1,000 messages, instead of just those from the past seven days. Another update lets you filter your contacts by who is online, so you don’t have to scroll through your contacts list to see that info.

To learn more about this update, head over to Skype’s Garage & Updates blog.
