A video call is a face-to-face conversation that happens on your TV. During a video call, you can turn off the video and switch to an audio call. You can turn the video back on at any time during the call.An audio call works much like a video call except there is no actual video. Instead, you will see your contact’s Skype profile picture during the call. Even if you make an audio call, you have the option of turning on video any time during the call.

Pairing the Skype Remote

Each Skype on XFINITY kit comes with a remote to control the TV, make calls, and message your friends and family.
