Microsoft adds Snapchat-like Stories to the Xbox App for iOS and Android

Many people are interested in the idea of time-limited Stories on social media platforms like Snapchat and Instagram. Microsoft has now joined the party and added Snapchat-like Stories to its Xbox app for iOS and Android so that gamers can share content that is only there for a short time with their friends and the rest of the Xbox community. Take a look at all of the information right down here.

The Xbox app for iOS and Android now includes stories

This week, Microsoft wrote an official blog post to inform people about new features and changes coming to the Xbox app for Android and iOS. As part of the May update, the Xbox app will be able to support Snapchat or Instagram-like Stories. This means that gamers will be able to make, share, and view Stories in the Xbox community. “Stories” let you show off your skills and stay in touch with your friends. This is what the company says.

On the home page of the Xbox app for Android and iOS, users will see a new Stories carousel right above all the other things on there. There will also be a “+” button that lets people add their own stories to the platform. The users’ Gamertags will also be there. As a bonus, users will also be able to add captions to the Stories.

Game clips, screenshots and achievements in games are things that people will be able to share in their Stories. They will stay there for 72 hours. In Snapchat, Instagram, and many other apps, you can only use them for 24 hours at a time. This is longer than that. It also shows up in a user’s activity feed on their profile for how long it lasts for people to see the stories that they’ve shared.

It’s not just party chat, console streaming, and multiplayer that Microsoft has added priority tags for. The company added a new Quality of Service (QoS) tagging option to support the new priority feature and prevent problems when there are many people on the network. Users can find the new QoS setting in the Network settings section of the in-app Settings menu. It’s in the General section of the menu.

Users in Australia are now getting the new version as soon as it is ready. However, Microsoft has said that it will soon roll out the update to other regions that use Xbox. Though, it didn’t say when it would be out. Please wait for more updates, and tell us what you think about the new Stories feature for the Xbox app below.
