Latest Xbox Mobile Android App Adds Console Streaming For Everyone And More
The new Xbox app has been rewritten entirely to tie together the vision of a “unified experience," according to Kristen Mann, Principal Program Manager for Xbox Experiences. The goal for the app is to make it “easier for all gamers to stay connected to your friends, games and fun at home or on the go, no matter what device they prefer to play on.” The app development team has merged and unlocked features from other apps to make the new app more conducive to use. Aside from being an Xbox social platform for voice and text chat, gamers will be able to use Xbox remote play as well. This enables them to stream and play purchased (or GamePass) games from their console to their devices.
As it stands, the app is only available on Android devices, but presumably it will make its way to Apple devices soon. In the meantime, the new app should be helpful with using an Xbox device for Android users. If you want to read about all the features in the new app, you can do so on Xbox’s blog post here.
