Windows 10 Xbox App Gets a Big Update, Fixes Issues that Prevented the Download
After the official Xbox app for Windows 10 has been released on the Windows Store, many have been reporting that the app had been crashing when users tried to download it. But now an update has fixed that.
The Xbox app for Windows 10 has been recently on the Windows Store and since then it has received new important features. Another recent update has brought quite a few new features, as follows:
- Real-time Friends list presence – your Friends list will automatically refresh with your friends’ on/offline status and the apps and games in which they’re currently engaged – including whether the game they’re playing can be joined via multiplayer or party
- Real-time Activity Feed updates – no need to hit refresh to see new Activity Feed items; keep the Xbox app open and your Activity Feed will let you know when there are new items to view, comment on, like, or re-share
- Game progress comparison – feeling competitive? Discover how you stack up against your friends on specific game progress by visiting the Achievements section of your profile and selecting ‘Compare.’ You’ll enjoy a side-by-side comparison of your selected friends’ progress on games you’ve recently played, including game completion percentage, Gamerscore and Achievements earned
- Console text entry – we’re also bringing one of the most requested features from Xbox Feedback to the Xbox app on Windows 10 – the ability to use the Xbox app for text input on Xbox One. You will now be able to use the Xbox app and other inputs compatible with Windows devices – keyboards, touch keypads, and the like – to enter text in search boxes and more on Xbox One.
Furthermore, the Xbox (beta) app has picked up an update that finally makes the app functional. This means that those crashing issues when trying to download the app should disappear now.
