Microsoft earlier this week brought fluent design to the Windows Xbox app, and added gamerpic support. Now the firm is also updating its Android and iOS apps with new features.
If you enjoy messaging on Xbox Live for some strange reason. You’re both strange, and in luck, as Microsoft has updated its Android app for Xbox with the ability to use chat overlay (think Facebook Messenger, but with a dark theme).
Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb writes
“This overlay experience lets you use your mobile games and apps while keeping your Xbox conversations within reach. When you get a new message, a chat bubble will open automatically for that conversation – this works for messages as well as club chat. You can also open this view by navigating to the conversation menu options. Chat bubbles are on by default, but if you would like to turn it off, you can choose “Settings” from the drawer, select the “Notifications” tab at the top, and disable the setting for “Chat Bubbles”.
The iOS update doesn’t bring the same features, as the operating system does not have a similar feature. However, users can expect to browse available games in the Xbox Game pass, as well as make new posts in the activity feed.
You can download it from the Google Play Store and Apple app store respectively.
