Microsoft has updated its Xbox app on Windows 10 that offers improvements to how users are able to keep tabs on their friends’ activity, game progression comparison, and additional improvements.
The updated Xbox app on Windows 10 will now display your Friends list and Activity Feed in real-time. That means as soon as your friends are online or if something of note occurs in your Activity Feed, you’ll be presented with that info without having to refresh the app.
Today’s update also offers the ability to compare game progress with your friends and the ability to input text to the Xbox One directly from within the Xbox app. This should make entering text much easier if you have a Windows 10 device close by.
Microsoft is also introducing the Xbox Beta app later this month. Similar to the Xbox Beta mobile app and the Xbox One Preview Program, Microsoft will give fans the opportunity to check out new features and enhancements to the Xbox app prior to making them widely available. To enroll, users will need to download the Xbox Beta app from the Windows Store when it’s made available later this month.
