Xbox Party Chat now available via iOS, Android

Party chat now available in the Xbox apps for Android and iOS

Microsoft has just launched party chat support in its Xbox apps for Android and iOS. The feature has been in testing with the beta Xbox apps on both platforms since December, but it's now rolling out to everyone on the release versions. In the Xbox app, you can navigate to the "Parties" section by tapping the icon that looks like three people at the top of the screen. You can get the Xbox app for iOS and Android from the download links below. In case your friend is already in a joinable party, you'll be able to see it and join the voice chat right from his or her profile.

Party Chat is something that's more interactive when you are actually in a game, but being able to access your chats whenever you are away from home removes the need for using third-party apps like Discord. You can also invite others to a party chat, or control the settings for a chat using the mobile apps.

For its part, Nintendo does something similar with Switch, putting voice chat in the mobile app rather than making players connect a headset to the console.
