Skype living room experience was the first product team I was in after joining Skype in September 2013. Our team was responsible for crafting delightful Skype experience on large screens, and my first task was to design a brand new Skype for TV.
The biggest challenge in this project was the limitation of control interface. Navigating around on TV is not as easy as on mobile or PC. There's no touchscreen or mouse that user can easily go around the UI, instead there's only a remote control which can only go up, down, left, right, one step at a time, so a minimal navigation is key to the design.
