Skype Demo & Dummy Account

Status: Tell Us More
by on ‎08-04-2014 03:05 PM

For families with loved ones over seas and otherwise, we need to demo the features of skype in the store. This would mean from the XBOX one demo to Home Theater Smart TV's to the tablets and laptops in Computers, we can skype each other. The account would need limited access in the past, but the Xbox one demos aren't as effective if you can't actually demonstrate what it does. Picture this: Customer comes to the xbox one and begins demo. I call on skype from home theater. Customer accepts call while in game. I'll ask my discovery questions and introduce myself there first! Then walk over and shake his hand. * Maybe even say I'm in another state then contact then on the sales floor!

This is an interesting idea. Would anyone else like to see this put into place? Make sure you vote for an idea if you like it.

I think this has merit.


Keep the demo in store though.  BB could have a demo tablet or computer set up and they could call from an Xbox One or other Windows device that has Skype


We used Skype a lot when our daugher was with her husband while stationed in Hawaii and when he was deployed to Afganistan she used it to communicate with him a number of times.


I think Best Buy would have a slew of technical issues though to make a live demo work.  Perhaps a well made video that is actually nuts and bolts without a lot of fast music and quick scene changes.

Thanks for the feedback, definately. As far as the technical issues, I would meet with stakeholders from Microsoft and Skype and invite them to a roundtable + Project team to merge the devices and plan for implementation.

I also like this idea, I think bestBuy should use this opportunity as well to restock their TV cameras/computer webcams. 


I remember posting a while back ( which by the way was going to be looked into and never got a response... ) asking why almost all of the TV cameras had been removed.

Thank you. What was the title of the suggestion you had about the tv's. I'll check it out and return a "kudo" for support after I hear you out. Thanks for your response!

It was a question I had asked one of the connectors in another board, wasn't a suggestion Smiley Wink
