This is the official companion application for one of the best consoles available. The Xbox app makes it easier to message friends and find ongoing games to join.
Your game group on your phone
The Xbox application is a great way to experience console games with friends and earn unique achievements.
The Xbox One has many multiplayer titles. Sometimes finding other players that share your games isn't always easy. This is especially true when you're trying to get a group together for a match on older iterations of games like Halo or Call of Duty. That’s where this companion application comes in.
To start, you can join a club and share your thoughts, ideas, or strategies with like-minded players. The app hosts plenty of forum-like areas for you to participate in. This is a great way to make new friends and put together a team for online matches.
Once you've found a few buddies, you can quickly get together and play a game. Otherwise, you can go searching for extra squad members or join another game's lobby and hop into a random team. Sadly, there isn't a way to tell how polite your fellow gamers will be. A system to monitor or filter out certain age groups might make a good addition to this app.
You can also chat with other gamers on your mobile device and discuss when to play or strategies for your next session. If you obtain an achievement, you can share that moment directly with friends or post it on a social media platform such as Twitter or Facebook.
You can also access the store to purchase games and other DLC, but you can’t create a wishlist. The app isn't the best way to watch for sales on games you want. Plus, the application is prone to crashing at random moments.

Should you download it?
