Microsoft is bringing consoles and PC’s closer with Windows 10 and the Xbox One. Current Xbox One Insiders can try out the latest additions that bring that link even closer. A new Skype Preview that is available does all the things you’d expect like video calls and chat but now it has added file transfers.
Combined with the File Explorer and One Drive apps for the Xbox One, the new Skype Preview allows you to send and receive files directly to and from your console. You can also share files between a PC and the Xbox One if you so wish.
The File Explorer app allows you to stream files from external storage like flash drives and the One Drive app also allows you to stream media directly from your cloud storage including photos and music.
If you are a member of the Xbox One Insider group, you can check out the Skype Preview now.
Skype was bought by Microsoft for $8.56 billion back in 2011 and has been looking for ways to make it the go to chat and VoIP system ever since.
