Microsoft Brings The February Update Of Xbox App For Windows 10
The new update for the Xbox app for Windows 10 has started to rollout last week.

We have a few small updates this month, but we’re sure that we’ll get more in the future.

Once the updated, February version of the Xbox app becomes available in the Store, you’ll automatically get yours updated. After you update your version of the Xbox app, your number should be 2.2.1502.02017 or higher, and you’ll be able to verify your version number under Settings.

Here’s the list of features that have been updated this month:

  • Top Navigation Bar. The smiley face  can be used to send feedback about the app to the product team, get access to forums for the Xbox app, and you can now rate the Xbox app.
  • Friends. The user experience for Friends has been updated so that you now see Suggested Friends under a Suggestion sheader at the top of the Friends list, with a See all button to browse the entire list of VIPs on Xbox and People you May Know. Additionally, you can now start typing in the Friends search box to instantly find specific friends.
  • Settings. Small fit and finish items were added to the settings page

You can test the new Xbox app within Windows 10 Technical Preview and provide the feedback to Microsoft in order to get as good final version as possible, so if you want to get the app by your desire, you should sign up for the Windows Insider Program and start testing.
