The tech company has already rolled out this new feature for Xbox S and X Series users. Microsoft also said it’s on by default, but players have the option to turn it off if they want.


The new Xbox OS update also added another new feature. In this case, it allows a user’s friends to join their gaming session from a PC or mobile device from a screenshot or clip.

This is made possible by Microsoft’s cloud gaming, Xbox Cloud Gamingwhich will run directly in the user’s browser when they click on a video clip or screenshot of a title that a friend has shared with them.
