Microsoft Shows Off Xbox One Friends App New Features
Microsoft's Major Nelson showcased the new features found in Xbox One Friends App.
The updated app allows up to 1,000 friends and an unlimited number of followers. It also allows its user to follow an infinite number of other gamers or celebrities.
"Your Xbox 360 friends will automatically be added to your Friends list. With Xbox One you can have 1,000 friends, connect with people instantly by following them and have infinite followers yourself. You can also see all of your Xbox One and Xbox 360 friends and their activity in your Activity Feed," Major Nelson posted on his blog.
Similar to the other social media networks, Xbox One allows you to share the latest in games and entertainment with fellow gamers, friends and family, or even celebrities and gaming personalities by following people.
Followers are treated as friends on Xbox One, but with different privacy settings. You can follow anyone you want and it's completely up to them if they follow you back. You can also decide what information your followers can see about you.
When you and another gamer mutually follow each other, it creates a more interactive relationship that unlocks the ability for you both to see information like when each other are online, what achievements you earn in real time and what you're up to on Xbox One.
