I too really like the auto zoom and panning functionality of the Xbox one Skype. If we were to have more control it would be superb. A choice of Smartglass, controller or audio control would be excellent!! Just for basic instructions such as zoom more, zoom less, follow person, fix focus, etc
Currently as others have described the zoom is stopped way before my face can be seen by the camera, and I am sititng just a few feet away! Its very frustrating knowing the capacity is there!!
Please sort this out and advertise when the improvement are likely (assuming they will be implemented!)
Keeping fingers crossed,
