.Not everyone wants to get on PC for party chat, and especially if you are on the move. While Xbox One Party Chat is aimed to help gamers have a great experience while playing multiplayer, nothing stops them using it for a casual chat. Microsoft has rolled out an update for their Xbox Live App on Android and iOS that allows one to use the Xbox’s Party Chat feature.
Xbox’s Major Nelson announced this feature yesterday, where he said “Starting today, you can use your iOS and Android mobile devices to start, join, and chat with voice and text in an Xbox Live Party”. You can also use the Party texting, invite more people to party, and change party settings when needed, join new party chat, and use voice from the phone.
Many a time I have used ditched my TV for listening to Audio chat and switched to Laptop, but now with this on phone, I can just plug my earphones, and connect it there for a much better experience.
Looking at the comments on Twitter seems like many want to have Discord like third-party apps to be available or integrated with Xbox Live. While the app is available for Xbox One, it’s not in a good shape, and unless the company makes a native UWP app, it won’t get the success.
