Thanks to this news, users can continue group chats on Xbox with their friends even when they are physically far away from their consoles. Microsoft is testing out an Xbox party chat mobile app and it's now available for Android, but iOS users will have an opportunity to try it out soon.
This should, theoretically, also work when you're playing an Xbox One game but want to use external speakers for game sound and your phone for chat audio, though admittedly it would be an unintuitive way of doing things.
Hidden Keylogger Discovered On HP Laptops
HP notes in an advisory the "potential security vulnerability" stems from certain versions of Synaptics touchpad drivers. After messaging HP, the company replied to Myng and confirmed the keylogger, which he noted was actually a debug trace.
With the Party Chat Beta now available on mobile, the users are free to roam and maintain proper connection on mobile which was not possible earlier due to it being available only via the Xbox One Console. The Redmond house has not announced a specific release date for the public to enjoy this feature, but it is likely that the wait is not very long. You can pick up the app via iPhone and Android right now, though this isn't considered an "official" announcement just yet as Microsoft hasn't made any kind of statement about it.
Though the Xbox app is available on both Android and iOS devices, this new beta is only now available on Android through the Google Play Store. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think of the app.
