The Xbox app for Windows brings some cool new features. The look and feel of the app haven’t changed at all from the previous version, so finding the differences might be confusing for some. However, Microsoft lets you link your Xbox Live account with Facebook via the Windows Xbox app making it it possible for users to find facebook friends.
Find Facebook friends with Windows Xbox app
The most notable change is the ability for users to link the Xbox app with their Facebook account. This makes it possible for users to find friends on Facebook who have also linked their accounts with the Xbox app.
To do so, launch the Xbox app for Windows 11/10 and take a peek at the right side; there should be an option to link to Facebook from there. Now, if it is not showing in the right-hand section, the next best place to find the option is by way of visiting the settings page.
Look to the left pane and choose the icon at the very bottom, then click on General. The option to link your Xbox Live account with Facebook should be right there.
For now, the feature isn’t that useful because, personally, I have several folks on Facebook who are part of the Xbox Live family, and none of them could be found using this feature. This is because they have yet to link their accounts, which is not surprising since the Xbox app for Windows 11/10 is very new, and the Facebook feature is also new.
Hey, you guys can go ahead and give it a shot. Chances are, you may have better luck.
Another neat feature is the ability to do voiceovers in Game DVR. Many fans have asked for this, and we can say without a doubt that it works really well. Furthermore, if you’ve always wanted to purchase Xbox One games from the app, it is now possible.
Previously, if users clicked on the Store icon, they would be brought to the Windows Store. Folks who have been using it for long should know by now how useless it is. That is why we were happy to find out that the Xbox app now gives the user access to the Xbox Live Store.
From here, Xbox One owners can purchase video game content for their console. Users can view images of any games or even watch videos created by the community.
Microsoft also made it possible for users to add Xbox digital codes via the app. Your Xbox Live subscription is coming to an end? Well, there is no need to turn on your Xbox One to update the account, just do it all right from the Xbox app.
How do you add People on Xbox app on Windows0?
To add people to Xbox app on Windows 11 or Windows 10, you need to use the Gamertag. You can search for Gamertag on the Xbox app to find someone. Following that, you can add him/her and allow the person to join you. Apart from that, you can send an Invite to someone on the Xbox app.
How do I connect my Xbox account to Facebook?
Xbox app allows users to connect their Facebook account so that people can join their Facebook friends easily. For that, you need to follow the aforementioned guide. That said, it is pretty straightforward to connect both accounts from the Settings panel. All you need to do is to enter your Facebook account credentials to get the job done.
Overall, the new features are great, and it just goes to show how Microsoft is taking the Xbox app on Windows 11/10 very seriously.
