Oh yeah this is a lame desperate attempt at keeping the ideas of Skype and Xbox One's new 'sharing' capabilities relevant.

Not gonna make a difference cause no one will even remotely consider this. Less than 1/1000th of a percent of their sales will use this. Not worth forking over those royalties.
