Late last year it was reported that Microsoft was testing out its Xbox Party Chat system for mobile devices. Since our phones are pretty much with us all the time, it makes sense that gamers can continue chatting with each other inside the app while on the go, and the good news is that the app has since been launched.

According to Microsoft’s description, “The Xbox app brings together your friends, games, and accomplishments from across your devices. Stay connected to your gaming community on the go, control your Xbox One from the app, and buy new games from the store. With your gaming life all in one place, the Xbox app keeps you connected to the games and gamers that matter most.”

The app will allow users to join Xbox Live Clubs, use the Looking for Group feature to form parties and play games, take their conversations on the go, see what their friends are doing on Xbox Live, share updates and game clips, watch and interact with game content, and even allows gamers to purchase games from the store.

The Xbox Party Chat app is available for both iOS and Android devices, so head on over to the iTunes App Store or Google Play for the download, if you haven’t checked it out already.
