Xbox Party Chat to Support 12 People Today Onwards
New Xbox One Experience features also in-bound for Preview Program members.
Party Chat on the Xbox One and on the Xbox App for Windows 10 has received a server-side update allowing for support of 12 people in a single party. The update is expected to be usable later today so keep an eye out for that. There won’t be any system update since the change is on Microsoft’s end, which means no download required.
Xbox One Preview Program members taking part in the New Xbox One Experience can also look forward to some new features today. These include a streamlined Game DVR, animated avatars, an updated menu which provides quick access to common actions, new settings in the Guide, more options for Party text chat and much more. Hit up Major Nelson’s official post to learn more.
The New Xbox One Experience will be going live in November and brings a ton of different features including backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 titles. Are you looking forward to it? If you’re in the Preview Program, what are your thoughts on it thus far? Let us know in the comments.
