Is Microsoft replacing classic Xbox voice chat with Skype? According to a rumor, Microsoft systems will in future only communicate via the online service - including the Xbox 720.
Microsoft has owned the online communication service Skype since 2011 and operates a department in London that is exclusively concerned with the further development of the application. A specialist magazine now claims to have learned from the group's environment that in the future they want to use Skype universally for all online communication on Microsoft systems and that they intend to crush all existing services. This applies not only to PCs, tablets and services such as MSN Messenger, but also to the voice chat of the Xbox 720.
According to the media report, a job advertisement from Microsoft recently appeared confirming plans. The group is currently looking for an interface designer to work on the Xbox 360 successor. The job is therefore to be started in the company's Skype department, where the aim is to optimize the communication service for use on television with a focus on the next Xbox.
