At gamescom 2019, Microsoft today announced several enhancements to the Xbox Game Pass app and the Xbox app for Windows PCs. These enhancements will allow players to easily find new games, manage their existing game collection, connect with other players and more. Check out the new features below.

  • Find your friends on the networks: Microsoft has made it easier to find and start games with friends with new account linking options. Previously, you could add your friends via their Xbox gamertags. With this upcoming update, you can search for friends on Facebook or Steam who are also on Xbox. You can now link your YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Discord, and Reddit accounts to your gamer card. This will allow your Xbox friends to follow your gaming adventures.
  • New ways to search and filter games: In order to improve the management of the game collection in the new Xbox application (beta), Microsoft announces new filtering options from the sidebar. This will allow you to find your favorite games and manage your DLCs even more easily.
  • More control over download management: When you download games from the Xbox Store, Microsoft now displays the disk space requirements for each game. In addition to that, you can also select the drive where you want your games installed.
  • PC joins the mobile app: The Xbox Game Pass mobile app now includes PC titles, allowing you to manage your Xbox Game Pass for PC library on the go.
