During its Xbox Spring Showcase last week, Microsoft announced that it would be bringing a slew of new features and updates to both its Windows 10 Xbox App and the Xbox One. Some of the upcoming features are minor, while others bring some long-asked for features.
Here is what users can expect in the coming weeks and months:
- Gamerscore Leaderboard in the Achievements section and Hero Stat Leaderboards in Game Hubs
- See Avatars in your Activity Feed if you’ve chosen to replace your gamerpic with your Avatar
- An updated “Featured” section spotlights games, deals, community events and more
- 16-person Party Chat is enabled across both Xbox One and the Windows 10 Xbox app
- Xbox 360 achievements will automatically post to your Activity Feed
- More interactive Game Hubs with web-linking
- Compare your Avatar with your friends’ Avatars
- Reputation interface changes, players with ‘good’ profiles will no longer feature a reputation gauge
Stay tuned for any updates on exact launch dates for these features as they are announced.
