The May 2019 Update is being rolled out today for the Xbox gaming console and it brings a couple of new features. One new feature will let you see if your friends are playing on a PC or the Xbox console. Some improvements to finding games and apps on the console have also been made. They will be better sorted in the categories so that it’s easier to find them.
The new improvement for the friends list makes it easy to find out if your friends are playing on the PC or console. The dashboard friends list will now show new icons to identify if your Xbox Live friends are playing on the console, PC or mobile.
It’s possible to play some Xbox games between the two platforms and with the addition of these new icons, it will prevent Xbox Live users from trying to invite people to games that don’t enable them to play across PC and Xbox One.
A new message requests feature has also been added which automatically filters messages that aren’t from your friends into a separate tab. As part of this new feature, all existing group messages are being wiped. Users will be able to copy them from Xbox.com for a limited time. The change doesn’t affect individual messages from friends.
