Xbox Party Chat App Coming Soon To iOS and Android Devices

Xbox party chat is coming to Android and iOS

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. This reminds us of using Discord mobile app on the go if you want to talk to your friends while gaming but don't want to use the console's chat system. The beta Xbox app for Android is available immediately with the party chat support, and you can sign-up to test party chat on iOS using Microsoft's form.

Microsoft has not made an announcement about this, but Reddit users noticed the change in the app's patch notes.

The Xbox Party Chat feature has been around for a long time on all Xbox One consoles, but users have always complained about the impossibility of being able to continue their chat even through the mobile app.

The White House also said that Newman's departure would take effect on January 20, exactly a year after Trump was sworn in. She noted that while she more access than most people, she came into the Oval Office only when the president asked her to.

The feature is listed as beta, so you can expect a few hiccups here and there, but it should function just as it does from the Xbox console.

Not only that, the app will allow players to chat between platforms, i.e. cross-platform chat between iOS, Android, PC and Xbox players.

More specifically, since the beta the app has added push notifications to know when your favorite streamers (cough cough DualShockers) is going live, a switched up display to ease navigation, and the ability to switch up video quality and toggle both audio and chat.
