Microsoft recently updated the Xbox beta app for Windows 10 Mobile with some new improvements. Similar to the Facebook app in beta, the Xbox app gives Microsoft an important testbed to help with the development of the main app.

With the Xbox beta app, fans will get the chance to share their input with Microsoft. Still, despite the chance of using new features, this app isn’t for everyone because it is prone to bugs at times. For those looking for a more stable experience, we recommend going for the regular Xbox app instead.

So, what’s new within this update? Well, the new Xbox beta update doesn’t come with a changelog so we’re guessing bug fixes and regular improvements. We’ve been using this app for quite some time, and can say for certain that the new update doesn’t feel any different from the previous version. Bear in mind nothing has visually, either. In all honesty, we were expecting a significant update seeing as the Xbox app hasn’t had one in quite a while.

What this app brings to the table:

  • Stay connected to the Xbox Live community. View activity feeds, send messages, watch game clips, find new friends, and more across Windows 10 devices
  • Party chat with other gamers on Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, and join them in cross-device multiplayer with games like Fable Legends and Gigantic
  • Stream and play games from your Xbox One to any Windows 10 PC in your home
  • Celebrate your epic gaming accomplishments. Share game clips and view your achievements and Gamerscore across Xbox One and Windows 10 devices

There’s a good chance the app might not receive a big update until after E3 2016. The app can be downloaded here from the Windows Store for free.
