If you're an Xbox gamer, the Xbox mobile app is a must-have. Instead of waiting until you get home to access your games and online account, the Xbox app allows you to connect straight to your profile and console while you're on the go. Whether you want to chat with your friends, share your favorite clips and gaming achievements, or even play games straight from your console, you can do it all on this comprehensive entertainment app.
Perhaps the most noteworthy feature of the Xbox app is you can play Xbox games on your mobile device. The app links to your console, which means it can directly connect to your game library. If you save a game on your console, you can play it on your phone or tablet through Wi-Fi or your mobile network. So, next time you're sitting in a waiting room at the doctor's office or a passenger in a long car ride, you can pass the time playing some Elden Ring or MLB: The Show!

Another great in-app feature is the ability to share content from your console directly to your favorite social networks. If you've got clips or screenshots of your most impressive or unique gaming moments saved to your Xbox console, you can use the Xbox app to quickly and easily share them with friends. You decide if you want to upload that content to your Xbox activity feed or other social media platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, or Facebook.
The Xbox app also makes it extremely easy to stay in touch with your online friends. For example, if you're on the way home from work and want to let your buddies know that you'll be ready for some Call of Duty in 30 minutes, it's no problem to send the message through the app. Plus, the app even features built-in voice chat, which will come in handy if you're in a situation where texting is inconvenient or impossible. The Xbox app doesn't limit you to one chat partner at a time, either; just like if you were at home on the console, you can always join up with a party and talk to several friends at once.
