Did you know that, with your Windows 10 PC, you already have access to the free Xbox app? In fact, the Xbox app is built directly into Windows 10, so it’s already there and ready for you.
The Xbox app brings together your gaming world across Xbox One and Windows 10 devices; that includes your friends, your games, your achievements, your avatar, access to the Xbox and Windows Stores and more. You can easily stay connected to the Xbox Live community, view your Gamerscore leaderboard across devices, view your GameDVR clips, start Party chats, stream your favorite games from Xbox One to any Windows 10 PC in your home while using your Xbox Wireless controller and more.
Today, we’re going to show you how to get started creating your first Club and Looking for Group posts in the Xbox app:
Clubs are online meeting places created by the Xbox community for people to play and socialize. Join clubs that interest you, or create a new club from scratch.
To start a Club:
To get started, open the Xbox app and click on the Clubs icon on the left-hand menu. From here, you can view and post to the clubs that you already belong to, search for new clubs to join, or create a club of your own.
Select “Create a club,” then choose the type of club you want to create: public, private or hidden. Name your club and select Continue. Then, select Create club.
Once you’ve created your club, give it some personality. Add a background, choose a profile pic, and make other customizations that’ll show the Xbox community what your club is all about.
To create a Looking for Group post:
Think of Looking for Group as a “players wanted” bulletin board—a way to help you find players on Xbox Live with similar goals and interests. Browse posts created by the Xbox community, or try creating your own post.
Start by opening the Xbox app on your Windows 10 PC, select Parties from the right-hand menu, then select Looking for Group.
Select a game from the list (this takes you to its game hub). Then, select Create post.
Add tags and a description, then adjust the details, such as the number of players needed. You can schedule a time to gather by adjusting Day and Party start time, or if you want to gather people into a party right away, select Now. When you’re done, select Post.
Looking for Group posts can also be created within a club – just go to the Looking for Group section of a club and follow the steps above to create a new post.
Have a great week!
