What's New in Version 2.10.4
This app is amazingly. There are no problems I've experienced with it. The remote control feature is seemingly instantaneous, the messaging is simple, and I get to drive home knowing which of my friends are on and what they are playing. I know whether or not I'm actually going to play my One before I have to turn it on. All of those features and I forgot to mention the fact that you can see the activity feed and watch videos of your friends gameplay and achievements. This app is an absolute must if you have an Xbox One. It's also a million times better than the PS4's app. Definitely irrelevant, but worth putting out there.
Ok it would be five but...
I would give this app five stars but I think you should make it where you can join a party with your friends on the go. So maybe your not by your Xbox but your friends are on and you want to talk to them you just join the party and put the phone up to your ear like a call. It's because one of my friends can't play Xbox that often and I never get to see him. Every time he gets on I'm not at the house that has the Xbox but I really want to talk to him. So if I could join the party with the app on my phone I could talk to him whenever I wanted because we've never met so we don't give each other our phone numbers.
Does what it says
...HOWEVER, the new Xbox One menu is kind of ridiculous when it comes to inviting friends to games, rallying parties and inciting parties to current games you're playing. What happened to "press the Xbox button, see friends , invite instantly"?
Too much loading and swiping and scouting for what you're looking for.
So, this app works really well with the already difficult Xbox One layout. I DO use it to IM friends constantly in games. It's instant and easy to use.
