Should you decide to stay in and watch World Cup action from your own home, Skype and Xbox One want to make sure you are still able to view games with friends.  Thanks to Skype Group Video Calling, you and up to three additional friends can join a group and watch the games together.  Cheer or root against similar teams and make it a party.

With Kinect on Xbox One, everyone viewing the game can be depicted on the screen.  With the Xbox One Kinect, the wide-angle lens allows the device to get each user on the screen.  If you need to get your jab in after the opponent scores a goal, Kinect will make sure to capture it.

Thanks to snap on Xbox One, whether using a controller or the voice feature, checking live scores through Internet Explorer is a breeze.  Make sure never to miss a goal of the action.
