“Our vision [is] of a unified Xbox experience across devices that puts gamers at the center, enabling them to stay connected to their games, friends and communities,” Kristen Mann wrote for Xbox Experiences blog.

Also, it features a share option that you can use to share ‘game clips and screenshots from your console to your favorite gaming and social networks’. It gets even better with this coming app.


“Lastly, we’re unlocking Xbox remote play, formally known as Xbox Console Streaming (Preview) for all gamers in the new Xbox app (Beta)—you no longer need to be an Xbox Insider to play games installed to your console on your phone,” Mann wrote.


Users also get the opportunity to showcase their best gaming moments and screenshots directly on their profiles. It is possible via a Highlights feature that stores game clips and screenshots. For now, it is only available on Google Play store, likely, the App Store requirements are a deterrent.
