Microsoft is now tearing down the walls which were used to segregate console and PC players from playing various games together. It is all about the time you knew how to chat and communicate with the players on both platforms.
In this guide, I am going to talk and teach you how to join an Xbox Party on PC, as well as how to start and leave an Xbox Party on PC if your friends have not got one set up yet.
Microsoft has completely changed the way people used to interact with each other, while playing games. They no longer have to play a game alone, and can have an actual Xbox party on PC. How fun can a party of gamers be where you can find people with mutual interests?
Start your Own Party
If there is no live party for you to join, then you can start one on your own.
- Open the Social Widget, and then at the right of “Friend Search” bar, you will see a headset icon.
- From there, an Xbox chat window will appear in front of you.
- You can mute your mic, and everything else, and set the party to the ‘Invite Only’ option.
- You can do this by choosing the unlocked padlock icon, displayed next to the bar at the top.
- Return to the social widget, and right click on the friend that you want to invite to the party.
- Select the “Invite to Party” option, and then wait for your friend to join it.
