  1. Xbox App now changed it's name to Xbox Console Companion


    Hey there, folk!

    If your new here, welcome to the Microsoft community forms!


    Some of you have probably realised that the Xbox App has changed its name to Xbox Companion App. It does the same thing as the Xbox App, but there are some new features!


    They have changed the name so it fits into how the App will be used in the future. The App will be a one stop place to customise the consoles features and settings right from your Windows or mobile device.


    More features and settings are set to follow in the near future for this app. However you do need to be running the latest versions of Windows.


    Logo has changed

    The Logo used to be a picture of the Xbox Icon. Now the logo has changed to a picture of a console as seen in the image underneath

    Group Messages have been removed from the App

    You will no longer be able to send group messages in the app. However, you will be able to send group messages on your Xbox console and from the Windows game bar when you press Start key & R together.


    You can still message people from within the App and through the Windows Game bar.


    Voice messaging on the App on mobile devices

    You will now be able to send and receive voice messages through your Xbox Console Companion App on your IOS and Android device. This is a new feature that has been implemented to make it easier for you to send and receive messages with your friends on Xbox.


    My old messages have been removed!

    Yes, when the App was updated, old messages have been removed. Xbox did send an announcement via Xbox Message about these changes.


    I hope this information is useful to you. If you have any feedback regarding the Xbox Companion App, please post them at https://xbox.uservoice.com or through the feedback app on Windows.


    Happy Gaming!

    Regards,

    :)
