Recently announced the release of a beta version of Xbox One March update to selected Xbox Live members. But today the company is also offering an early look of the changes and improvements, including the revamped Xbox One’s friends and party features.
In the hands-on video Microsoft’s Xbox Live Larry Hryb together with Richard Irving, an engineer from the Xbox One team, show off the changes coming to the game console in March while playing Titanfall (beta). They also revealed that party chats inside parties now start by default and gamers can now invite friends to chat or just to play the game, or both.
Friends list now can be accessed even faster, Microsoft says it only takes one voice command or 2-3 clicks to get to your friends. The top of the list now shows your favorite friends. The Xbox One team also added a new context menu to the Friends list to either send a message, invite to party, or compare games. And with the new update is possible to search gametag using the Bing feature.
The Xbox One update is scheduled to arrive in March, a beta version of the update should be rolling out to Xbox Live members pretty soon. But for everyone else that have to wait until the final version, this video will give you a really nice sneak peek of what’s coming.
