Xbox mobile app will let you share the game content in Snapchat-style Stories

Microsoft is updating the Xbox mobile app on iOS and Android to let you share your game moments in the form of Snapchat-style Stories. Gameplay clips, screenshots, and achievements are all compatible with the new sharing format, which is accessible by tapping the “+” button next to your gamer tag on the Xbox app’s home screen. Content will then be shown on your profile for 72 hours. There are also new network management features coming to Xbox. Stories are all the rage with everyone from Instagram, to LinkedIn and Spotify imitating the format in their respective apps. Although the trend seems to have abated recently with the focus shifting to TikTok-style scrolling feeds. Alongside the new Xbox app feature, Microsoft has also announced a new Quality of Service (QoS) tagging feature on Xbox consoles. It’s designed to prioritise traffic that’s sensitive to network congestion like multiplayer gaming or party chat, and is accessible in the Advanced section of the Network settings menu. However, Microsoft says the feature will need to be supported by your home router or ISP network and cautions that it might cause issues with some networks.
