  • Party chat support rolls out to the Xbox beta app for Android

Luckily, Microsoft listened to its users' requests and made a decision to bring the chat feature into the Xbox app for Android and iOS smartphones. Microsoft is testing out an Xbox party chat mobile app and it's now available for Android, but iOS users will have an opportunity to try it out soon. That means that if one friend is playing Minecraft on console, another on PC and another on mobile, all three would still be able to communicate in the one chat.

"Presumably, this will allow you to chat with your Xbox party on your phone, similar to the way the Nintendo Switch works".




Thanks to this news, users can continue group chats on Xbox with their friends even when they are physically far away from their consoles. There's no word yet on whether it'll ever make its way onto the main Xbox smartphone app, or if it'll come to Apple's iOS devices, although it's highly likely that both of those things will eventually happen. That's why Microsoft is bringing a new feature, now in beta, to your smartphone. Download the Xbox BETA App right now from PlayStore.

Microsoft has not officially announced this new feature, but it's safe to say it should be releasing for everyone eventually seeing as people have spotted it on the app's page.
