Xbox One updated with new social, mobile features

In an update to the Xbox One, Microsoft has improved a “number of social features” to make sharing your “gaming experiences with friends better and easier.” Here’s a shortlist of features in the update:


  • Activity feed: Microsoft’s adding new ways for you to interact with friends in the activity feed. The interface will change to a single column scrolling list that is longer and includes more content. We’ll add the abilityto post text to your feed, and to “like” and comment on feed items. You can share game clips and anything else in the feed with friends either publically (to your activity feed) or privately (as an attachment to a message). You’ll also be notified when anyone likes, comments on or shares your items. Each user will get a personal feed on their profile, so you can see what specific friends have been up to. And, with SmartGlass, you can see what your friends have shared in their activity feed and like specific posts.
