Microsoft is adding new updates for the Xbox app on Windows 10, with recently added features including game bar shortcuts, friends list changes, game hubs, and more. Check out a recently released video from Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Major Nelson and Director of Programming for Xbox Live at Microsoft:



The Xbox app is only available to Windows Insider program members, which has opened early testing of the upcoming Windows 10 OS. Microsoft has added a game DVR, with customized shortcuts that make it easier to capture screenshots or record gameplay footage. Live streaming isn't currently available, though is expected at some point in the future.


Similar to the Xbox One game hubs, the app will let gamers view achievements, check game play usage, and view customized activity fields.
