It's now easier to keep up with your Xbox gaming pals when you've ventured beyond the living room.
It works like a charm too. If you're not an Xbox owner, the Xbox ecosystem on PC and smart phone is a good place to start, and it's free to play online on PC. Here's hoping that they bring an Xbox 360 emulator to smart phones at some point (backwards compatibility program).
That would be amazing if they could pull it off. BC titles on Windows 10, iOS and Android...connect your Bluetooth Xbox controller and you're off...would be all the portable solution they need.
Nice little feature! I'm surprised it wasn't implemented way sooner though simply because of the way it helps keep the community together. Almost seems like a no brainer, IMO.
Once thought this idea impossible. But technology is pretty impressive! It works very well.
No longer need a phone service
Wow! that's one nice feature. Would love to be able to do the same for PSN party chat via my smartphone. Keep pushing the industry for more, competition is always good :)
Always a step ahead another awesome feature. GG MS
Great feature. Could come in handy in titles like Minecraft which is already cross-play between console, PC and now mobile. Great for clubs as well. I'll say this...Xbox this gen might not have all the exclusives and marketing deals as other platforms...you might desire more games...but in all other areas, Xbox is leading the way.
Nice feature in the app, hopefully Sony adds voice support as well in theirs.
Nobody can deny that MS is miles ahead on features and upgrades to the ecosystem.
