  1. Astral Knight-avatar

    I really like the app, it's just, the loading times of basic things such as messages, and other sections of the app, take forever, and sometimes just don't load at all. This app needs to be optimized more. That's one thing that really annoys me is that I know it's not my phone, because I have a Galaxy Note 9, but the app is even slower on my gaming PC. So I just wish the app was more optimized, smoother, and faster overall.

  2. Galaxy_Fox_Girl 321-avatar

    This app used to be fine last year and I haven't used it till just now. I originally got this app for parties because my microphone didn't work and to customly change the gamer pic. When I clicked "upload" to upload my custom picture, it kept saying "sorry can't upload right now, try again in a short while" I kept trying and trying, trying to see if it worked. Sorry I had to give this app a one star review, just please fix this please!

  3. Imouto-avatar

    Fix your app! I've been trying to use a Custom Gamerpic and it just keeps kicking me out, I've been fed up with this as most of the gamerpics are very boring or generic. I've been trying for the last hour to find a fix but nothing! This is very annoying and it would be nice if you people actually knew how to keep your customers happy or even run an app properly. Never had these problems with the Playstation App before. I hope Sony crushes you with the next-gen consoles.

  4. Livy Luna-avatar

    considering the company is so big you would think this app wouldn't have any issues whatsoever. would be nice if it did work. it never shows friends list saying that something went wrong, app crashes when you're in a party and not on the app so i can't be playing a game or something whilst in a party, refresh button just doesn't work it's just trash. some problems even follow to the computer program. it gets the job done but as said, you would think they'd fix the issues.

  5. Mitch Winney-avatar

    This app is functionally terrible! Half of the time pages fail to load, the other half they take so long to load I'm certain it's going to fail. My main issue is that I have tried for a few weeks to change by gamerpic, but the xbox app emplores me to try again later every time. Furthermore, xbox customer support DOESN'T HAVE SUPPORT OPTIONS FOR THE WHOLE APP and essentially tells you to F off and ask somebody else for help. What's the deal, Microsoft? Do you hate fun?

  6. A Google user-avatar

    Doesn't even work at all any more. Starts up and then crashes out. Total waste of time! It's now early July and I've just tried re-installing it. Yes, this pile of doggy dos STILL crashes out. Words fail me! Reinstall March 2020 - but it can't list friends, even if it can compare achievements- so the 1-star has been upped to two - still a very poor show!

  7. Cameron Chiles-avatar

    Had this app for probably 4 years now. For being supported by Microsoft, it's terrible. Most of the time my friends list never loads. Half the time notifications dont work or if you turn certain notifications off they still trigger. You'd think after all this time they would've developed this into a properly working app. But I've had nothing but issues the entire time I've had it.

  8. Melissa Padilla-avatar

    The new update is laggy and slow and does not allow me to join or make parties and constantly kicks me out of them after connecting for a few seconds. Microsoft should have just not updated the app,it was fine before. Edit-I don't know if anybody else is getting this,but whenever i try to go into a party (after not connecting),it says:"Something went wrong. Try again later. (Error code:-1)". What does error code:-1 mean,and what am i supposed to do with It???

  9. A James-avatar

    The entire purpose for installing the app is the ability to connect my phone to my console, and it hasnt been able to connect at all for a week. Wirelessly and with the ip address and no luck. I would rate 5, but seeing as my entire purpose for having the stupid thing isnt working, you'd get 0 if it was an option

  10. Keith B.-avatar

    It does what I need it to do, but it doesn't do everything it says it does. It also takes a long time to load various things (If it loads them at all. Such as your friends list) overall a solid app, just don't expect too much more than the ability to control YouTube (or whatever video player, music, etc...) and to check messages (sometimes)

  11. philox phobia-avatar

    A few days or weeks ago xbox apps started having glitches with mobile users like me with being able to change our profile picture to a custom one,I thought it was just my phone but yesturday I asked some good friends of mine who use Xbox app,and they said it was doing the glitch to them to where it says "try again later" over and over whenever you try to change your profile picture,I still love the app a lot but I would really like to know why it's doing this.

  12. Hibaua R6-avatar

    Honestly I've had an alright experience with the app, although I just use it for clips and editing my account. I'm not sure if it's a bug, but the name sharing settings don't display. Instead of allowing the option to change a name or let other people view your name, it simply says, "Sorry, we couldn't get this info, Please try ag..." refreshing the app, page, uninstalling does not fix this problem. I've played with other people having similar issues. Edit: Now I can't change my profile pic

  13. Rey_ 00-avatar

    The app is decent overall but there is one problem I have to note is that I cannot change my gamer pic and it keeps saying (sorry, we cant upload the picture right now. Try again in a little while.) I waited till the next day, did it again and still pops up the same message, please fix this problem.

  14. stribog hr-avatar

    Hi, sorry to bother you but I have an issue with app, when ever I wish to start a party chat through app it says something like "you are already in party on other device would you like to leave it" the thing is that I'm NOT in any party on any other device and when I leave non exited party and start new who ever join my party through xbox one that person hears echo of him self. Could you please give me some suggestions how to fix that. Thank you in advance 🙋.

  15. •_VoidStar_•-avatar



    Its great and all, but theres one problem. Everytime I go to change my gamer pic, it says "Sorry, We Cant Load The Picture Right Now, Please Try Again Later." But then I read somthing. It said that Xbox has currently temperarly disabled changing profile pictures. Its been maybe a week and its still not working. I sware to god if this "temperarly disabled" thang has somthing to do with the coronavirus, THEN SCREW YOU!!

  16. Hayley Ingram-avatar

    Like this app is good I am just having trouble uploading a custom gamerpic. I only use moblie to do so. It worked before but its not working now. I am simply trying to upload a average photo and it's been saying it doesn't work come back later. I have been waiting for 2 weeks for it to work again. Any advice??

  17. Aaliyah Mamae-avatar

    Custom gamerpic isnt working. Been trying for the past month still dont work. Was working perfectly fine before but now its not. Tried uninstalling and signing out still didnt work, tried installing the other app but exactly the same thing, nothings different about it, its just claimed to be "beta" when its not. Anyways i recommend you fix this problem or im just gonna get merge to ps4.

  18. Lana-Chan-avatar

    Before i updated it to this edition it worked perfectly fine. Now i can't even sign into the account. Its irritating to be one day able to access everything, update your app and never be able to sign in again. It always said something was wrong and even though i have the right account and everything. It won't sign me in. I would greatly appreciate this being fixed, and fast. Im not the only one who has this issue and it makes me not want to use microsoft products or services. Kindly fix this.

  19. Mic Clairity-avatar

    Used to be able to open up text box on my console and it would immediately give me the text box Wiz keyboard on my app so that I could use my phone to type faster. Now every time I open any text box on my console with the controller app on and also connected to the same Wi-Fi both the phone and the console it won't come up to allow me to use my phone to type. Fix this and I will raise my rating

  20. Ginge5ify-avatar

    Garbage. 9 times out of 10 it doesn't load my friends lists and says, " something wrong". It's not my phone or internet, etc. Also, party chat is, just as buggy. 8 times out of ten I get booted from my friends party the first time joining. Most of the time I don't even get an invite via my phone even though I'm waiting on the app. Sometimes I even get, "?"s appearing in the party chat notification indication its"?'s party" this is rediculous.

  21. Ryan Brennan-avatar

    This app has stagnated in comparison to the rest of Microsoft's apps. In 2016, it fit in well and functioned properly. Today, the app's interface is incredibly dated, and many things just straight up don't function correctly anymore. The friends section spits out an error 70% of the time even after force closing the app, and the video player doesn't hide the status bar correctly and creates a black line at the top of the screen. The refresh button has been partly hidden for a few years now...

  22. Experiment 368-avatar

    I've been trying to log in for many times now and it keeps saying that something went wrong. It also doesn't-or barely-registers any of the achievments I get in any game, which is quite annoying for me. When I was able to actually go onto it, the notifications would not show so when one of my friends followed me I had to exit the app and click "followers" instead of notifications. It does have some helpful uses but those sometimes don't even work properly. I could go on, but can't bc limit.

  23. Billy Barnes-avatar

    Since the last update, i had to sign in again. Everytime says my password is incorrect. Try to recover my password, and get a message that says "There's a temporary problem with the service. Please try again. If you continue to get this message, try again later." EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. For over a month now

  24. Dylan Papaioannou-avatar

    Dylan Papaioannou


    It seem alright sometimes but most of the time it will crash or do wierd disconnecting things in parties, every 30ish minutes I have to restart a party and invited everyone back becuase of various things like sound failure, or randomly saying people are disconnected, I would just use my controller bus for some reason the audio jack on my lightly used controller wont read any headphones, if any one reaches out to help Id really appreciate it! Ps. Im using a samsung device.

  25. Ulysses 757-avatar

    I have been trying to change my profile picture multiple times a day for over a week but i can't! I keep getting a popup error message that says its currently not working, that issue needs to be, high on the priority list. Test it for yourselves if it sounds like what im saying isn't truth.

  26. bubblegum pop-avatar

    Trash. Can't upload a custom gamer pic and I keep being told to try again later. Another thing I hate about the app and Xbox in general is that when you block someone, you still see their posts in clubs and stuff like that. So dumb. Microsoft, if you're going to attempt to blend social media features with the Xbox, at least give us basic features like letting us block people from the news feed. Gt it together. Do better, please.

  27. Rose Laven-avatar

    It has a handful of issues that are rather irritating. I stopped getting any sort of notification seven months ago. It also makes me clear the app from my history and then reopen it just to see new messages. Please fix this. Edit: I am not sure if it was my phone or if you guys fixed the issue, but thanks either way. I am finally getting notifications again.

  28. Serenity Novalee-avatar

    Serenity Novalee


    Cant change my picture, says i need to wait a while. Waited a couple days, still cant. This app is very slow, shuts down a lot too. I use it as a mic since i do not have one. Once i do get one I'll probably never use this again, pretty bad app for a company that claims to be the best.

  29. daiyaan davids-avatar

    The app was working fine, until it kicked me out and I had to log in again. Forgot my password and selected the "forgot password " option. Gave me options to verify my self through email or contact number, but once you select an option it says it's temporarily unavailable to do so. This has been so for more than a month and I have been unable to use the app, yet I get notifications of through the app of my account. Is their perhaps a way to do this on their website?

  30. Alpharius Omegon-avatar

    Alpharius Omegon


    I've been using this app for at least 8 months now and seen it go down the tubes after as far back as December. Half the time you can't connect to parties, and the other 99% of the time I just end up disconnecting within 5 minutes, moreover I can't even leave partys so I have to restart my phone every time it disconnects. It's hilarious to see bot accounts give this app five stars when nothing works properly. PS. I love seeing Microsoft in the patch notes saying improvements to party chats.

  31. Mohamed Alsaidi-avatar

    Mohamed Alsaidi


    This app is absolutely egregious. I can never connect properly because I keep getting the infuriating "something went wrong message". This app hasn't been updated in a long time and I know other people understand my issue. The party always lags and thats if I can even get into one. I'm forced to uninstall and reinstall to hope to connect. Please just fix this app already.

  32. jeremy rhodes-avatar

    Honestly being able to join a party is the only plus of this app. And even then sometimes you can't join an existing party and occasionally it will kick you out of a party. You would think they would be able to make a competent app but this is nowhere near close. Sometimes it won't even load my friends list to see who is online. It's okay not even close to being good but I guess it could be worse.....

  33. Abdul Asad-avatar

    This app is garbage there's always a problem with it so I can rarely do what I want. I've been trying to change my profile picture since yesterday but I still keep getting the message "sorry we couldn't upload right now. Try again in a little while." It's been almost 24 HOURS! What is a little while in Xbox standards? Disappointing.

  34. Chris Melby-avatar

    This app constantly glitches every time you will try to press something it won't work. It doesn't work with anything, send a message, start a party, anything. Also when you manage to get in the party it will kick you out about every five minutes. If I could give this app a 0 stars I would. Don't waste your time getting and using this app.

  35. Scorpio-avatar

    Absolute horrible app only ever used it for changing and using the custom gamerpic but now it just says error we can't upload this at the moment please try again later its been about 2 months and still can't use it. Even got a new phone and it doesn't work Xbox just doesn't seem to care about the players anymore. Been supporting Xbox since 2009 just disappointing anymore.

  36. J Cibs-avatar

    This app is horrible! It is super glitchy, the friends list never loads, and the app never functions right. It is about time Xbox comes out with an update to fix this incompetent poor excuse for a gaming app! Pathetic that a multi-million dollar company can't even get an app to function right. Ps4 app never causes any problems for me.

  37. David S-avatar

    The party chat in the app passes all received audio back to the mic when connected to a Bluetooth device which it didn't used to do. Seems like the echo canceller has been completely disabled. This is a problem for me because my friends and I chat from our Xboxes and our mobiles using party chat regardless of if we're playing games. Also, the keyboard interface for the app to console input rarely works anymore. Those are the only features I really use the Xbox app for. Maybe others work better.

  38. Ethan S-avatar

    Awful app. I'd give it 0 stars if I could. There's tons of bugs and glitches that have been present for months, and some even years. I have to reload my app about 6-7 times before I can see my friends list, and half the time I open it, it signs me out. I could sit here all day and list bug after bug but its honestly just a waste of time, it's not like they're gonna get fixed or anything.

  39. Kristopher Ege-avatar

    Anyone else have a problem using the apps keyboard when trying to type messages on Xbox? I've cleared all my caches on my phone and this is my third reinstall of the app.. and still it closes my keyboard while typing.. and I wanna say I've had this problem for years now because I'll get annoyed and forget about it for a while till I need a keyboard for my Xbox lol

  40. Gage Brewer-avatar

    It won't let me upload a custom picture to my account. There is always something wrong when I try anything. I deleted this app and stopped using xbox for awhile and come back to see it is still pretty bad. It has basic functions almost down. The remote works so that is something.

  41. Dale Doback-avatar

    Can no longer change my gamer picture (doesn't work for 3 other accounts I own either) which is frustrating. I don't use anything inappropriate or against any rules in regards to uploading gamer pics. So, I know for certain it's not that. Please fix this issue. Otherwise the app is fine and serves its purpose.

  42. cool ZSBAKER-avatar

    Xbox app is a really good app for people while away from the game but when u get into a party with ur friends my mic on the xbox app cuts out and they cant hear me then I have to leave the party and join back or I have to invite them and it's happened like 25 times!! I really think yall should fix this if that would be great:)

  43. Dalton Chutes-avatar

    This app is incredibly slow and unresponsive at times. Expecting your friends list or any other info to actually load is a 50/50 gamble. I primarily use this to talk to friends in party chats when I'm not at my Xbox, but even when I'm able to connect to a party chat, it's very slow and buggy, requiring me to constantly close and restart the app. (ex: if I play another audio clip from YouTube or something while in a party, I lose all party audio even when the video is closed, until I restart) .

  44. TheOnlyCVS-avatar

    This app is good at least when it works most of the time I open the app and go to my friends and it says "something went wrong when loading this section" and I close the app open it again and it does the same thing. I have re opened the app at least 10 times and it has not worked at all I even deleted the app and signed out of my account and it didn't work at all please fix this problem it really makes me mad.

  45. Carter S-avatar

    It worked fine for a bit but now it won't show anything unless I join a club and now that doesn't even work. All my friends are apparently offline even though I'm speaking to them on discord and there playing a game made by Microsoft. It lags constantly and sometimes it crashes for no reason, just sad to see an app made by a huge company be so terrible at it's one job.

  46. Purple Knight-avatar

    I only got this for my minecraft account, but I can't log in on it cause I forgot my password. When I try to send an email or whatever it says there is an issue and to try again later. I've tried doing it DAYS apart but NOTHING!! Now there's a problem with my account and I can't fix it because of this stupid issue. I'll rate 5 stars if I get a helpful reply. EDIT: I uninstalled and reinstalled and it's working.

  47. William Easley-avatar

    The worst part about this app is how unreliable it is. What is the most upsetting is not being able to use it as a keyboard for your Xbox or use it to enter gift cards. You might think to yourself, but wait it can do that. Then as I said, it is completely unreliable. They keyboard never opens up but you can still use it to press Y, X, B, or A because that always seems to work properly. The whenever you try a gift card it tells you your gift card is the wrong country? So helpful....

  48. Xavier Peery-avatar

    I love the app its useful but i've been having a problem it wont let me change my gamer pic its keeps saying (sorry we cant upload this right now try again in a while) i waited 4 hours it said it again then i waited a day it said it again i restarted my phone and deleted the app then reinstalled it, its still saying the same thing please fix this.

  49. Cheez Wong-avatar

    This app is pretty much broken right now. The main reason I use it is to communicate with multiple players without using the Xbox console UI and to group up in parties. The app won't even acknowledge people being online and opening a party creates a magical wormhole in my phone that requires a restart to even close the party. On top of that, none of my invites are going out. It's very annoying if you prefer to avoid using voip on your console.

    Disappointed in the lack of basic understanding of their own consoles and how efficiently the app works with them. I don't have and will never have a monitor like others do to pretend they're proper gamers. I just want the app to work properly without all the lagging. Unfortunately I had to get my xbox one from an established second hand dealer so now I can't use the QR scanner. Consoles and games alike should be second hand reset for registration

  51. Idk names-avatar

    You know this app is good but sometimes my mic will just not work out of nowhere. I can talk to my friends wich is fun a fine. I keep trying to change my profile pic and every time I try it says change it in a while. It's been like that for 4 days now. 4 DAYS! I even uninstalled the app and got it back and it still doesn't work.

  52. M-avatar

    Half the time it fails to connect to my xbox, the other half it fails to load the friends list. The only reason I downloaded the app was to use the friends list and my phone as a keyboard which requires connection to the xbox. Have switched phones, consoles and routers, same mediocre performance.

  53. ElectricClam-avatar

    My name is "ElectricClam" on Xbox, This app is helpful! Whenever I'm away from my console I go on this app. It's like having your Xbox console with but on mobile but you can't play games. Although despite it's good features, whenever I need to check messages, notfactions, activity feed, etc, this app can sometimes be slow and takes a little time to update itself and catch up to the right time.

  54. Sidney Cross-avatar

    I am unable to interact with my console from my phone while using the app. Can't use my phone as a remote, to make web browsing more convenient, for easy typing when chatting and sending messages back and forth. Getting frustrated with all these issues I've been having with Microsoft. I'm probably just gonna uninstall this app and buy a keyboard for the console. No time to deal with the headaches.

  55. Ethan Sheesha-avatar

    I like the app. But it would be nice if it didnt have autism. I cant see my friends list, it takes years to load, and it doesnt keep me in the party. Iv had this app for like 2 years and it has always been broken every time I use it. It would be a 5 star if it actually worked like it wasn't a beta. I got high speed internet there should be no excuses for this crappy app

  56. Flanners-avatar

    I love being able to play with friends but one problem I have is I can't upload a custom profile picture, I have tried multiple times but it keeps saying "sorry we couldn't upload your custom profile picture, please try again later" and it never seems to sort itself out

  57. coolguy10143-avatar

    The app is terrible, on both my ipad and android phone, I can't join a party 80 percent of the time because "something went wrong" every time I attempt to use this poorly designed app. I have friends who are sheltered and dont have phones or discord, so this is my only form of communication, which sucks, because now I can't talk to them on most. The worst part is that Microsoft will never do a nyy thing to fix their issues. Fix your app.

  58. Stone Saiyan-avatar

    I really only use this app for 2 things. To change my gamer pic and get notifications when im not on my console. For 4 days straight, i have tried to change my gamerpic. Keeps telling me it can't upload the picture at this time. Hopefully yall are working on fixing that. I might even give this app a better rating and review

  59. L0L 808-avatar

    This app barely works. The main reason i use it is to see what friends are online from my phone or to reply and send messages: which 9 times out of 10 it wont work. Says it failed to load and then thats just it, close it, reopen it, and boom same result. These same issue exist on the windows 10 version of the app also, only way worse. Pretty disappointing.

  60. Matt Quintana-avatar

    The app is incredibly slow and laggy. I primarily use the app to check if I have friends online so I don't have to turn on my Xbox. But this function barely works, and with the last update has gotten even worse. There's never a guarantee my friends list will actually show up, and at this point, it seems to NOT work much more often than it actually does work.

  61. That Random Guy-avatar

    That Random Guy


    Oh it's a great app by far. It really helps when it doesn't load. I enjoy having it crash every few minutes and not being able to see the friends list or any other list under the people catagory is just great. It really is just a swell annoying app.

  62. DRUCK 07-avatar

    I want to bet that if I had an XBOX 1, it would work fine. The fact that I dont and the thing doesnt work is amazing. Its not even that I hate Xbox or Microsoft all that much, the app just doesnt work! Menus are janky and unresponsive, key info and profiles refuse to load randomly, partys mute you at random, the app even crashes randomly, even if I didnt do anything! Never have I seen an app so disfuntional before. Just get Discord, please.

  63. naurtoagod velasquez-avatar

    This was a very great app but, when I tried changing my gamer pic it wouldn't let me I tried reinstalling and saw the reviews and some people where having the same problem I did some reserch and realize now xbox with the custom gamer pic is going through mantinece so if you were wonder why this was happening here's your answer.

  64. Cheese Cake-avatar

    It absolutely baffles me how a TRILLION DOLLAR COMPANY, whose whole shtick is DEVELOPING ELECTRONIC SOFTWARE, could make an app that would make the Lord Jesus Christ cry in frustration. I downloaded this app for one purpose and one purpose only: to upload a custom profile picture. Could this app deliver on this sole request of mine? Not in the very slightest. "Sorry, but we failed to upload your photo. Try again later." For one week straight. Don't bother with this app until they overhaul it.

  65. Nova-avatar

    Fix your app, you might make it look better with a new update sure but what you should be doing instead of making it look cool is actually making it work. I've been trying to change my profile picture just like everyone else has been for over a week and it still says try again later.

  66. Aiden Schweizer-avatar

    The messages never seem to send, I never get notified of messages sent to me, the party is glitchy as all hell, and to top it all off it randomly has a crashing fit making it impossible to open. Please fix this app! Its so infuriating but its all i have to message and party with friends.

  67. Gino Minosky-avatar

    I wish I could give this a 5 star but sadly I can't. This app is full of bugs. Always glitching, nothing ever loads, and you'll sometimes have a good stretch where you're not having any problems for 3 minutes. Also Everytime I'm in a chat or party on speakerphone, anytime someone calls me,I hang up and return to xbox app, I have too leave and rejoin because I can't hear anyone. Motorola Z2 Force Verizon.

  68. Greg Renner-avatar

    Even worse since the last review i left. Cant join parties it gives an error message. If you dont catch the notification right as you look at the screen you wont be able to find it anywhere else and youll have to join from your friends page, which gives an error each time. You can start a voice chat but its seemingly different from a regular party and only doable by the mobil app. Its useless and doesnt work. Controller cant use earbuds without terrible background noise. Controllers always suck

  69. Miss C Clark-avatar

    Stopped working!!! Prior to March 01, 2020 the app worked perfectly. Now the only thing that works is device screen volume. No remote capabilities whatsoever. The profiles update once you login. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times. Restarted the console several time. Had my app forget the console and reconnected, still no remote access. All i have is heptic feedback for B button with no console response action.

  70. Erik Ušaj-avatar

    Not sure what's the main purpose of the app. It looks complicated and does not include features like ability to type messages on Xbox with an in-app keyboard. Subscriptions cannot be extended from app, also Game Pass app is not available in Europe? Microsoft doesn't sell with Euro currency!? Anyway this is one of the reasons PS is a better choice in my country. Ah yes, you can take a capture but that is so far away that you might miss the action. And you can chat with any Xbox friends.

  71. Klim-avatar

    It dosen't let me change my pfp anymore I click to set it and then it says that the picture couldn't be uploaded at the moment and to try again in a little while I then wait a whole day for it and it still dosen't work even after uninstalling and reinstalling several times restarting my phone etc. if the bug gets fixed I'll change my review

  72. Tori Rose-avatar

    It doesnt give any notifications for anything! Ive been trying to connect to others worlds, but I dont get their invites at all. Im constantly logged out of my own account, and overall, its more hassle than this is worth. Please fix this. I thought this was just my phone, but other reviews have the same issue

  73. Matthew Williams-avatar

    It was going well until me and my brother wanted to play with each other and we wanted to see if we could join in a world and have fun and such but that didn't happen instead I was confused on how to invite others I sent the invite and my brother never got it could you fix this please..? (We're both on moblie)

  74. mac n cheese-avatar

    It glitches every time you accidently do something, disconnects you for no reason, you can't mute or leave the party half the time and it's so annoying when you do one little thing it breaks the whole party. It can't even load your friends list. Fix this and you'll get a five, but for now it's a 1.

  75. Jeffery Karr-avatar

    The app is great. I can see all my messages, achievements, etc. but it wont link to my new xbox. I am going thru set-up, enter the code and it doesnt show its linked. I get notifications about the xbox like ".... is done downloading," "Your console is up to date," but when I'm on the app it doesnt show its connected.

  76. SxyLordDellons-avatar

    One thing for sure the XBOX App now works again finally, but the only thing is I can't change is MY GAMERPIC to a CUSTOM, I waited for days, weeks, months... ITS STILL NOT LETTING ME CHANGE TO A CUSTOM PFP, that's the one thing I hate. Fix the app again so I can rate it better than last time

  77. Derek Shall-avatar

    Can see who's on, invite to party, and buy games. It's very good, but it's hard to accept party invites. You have to click on it at the top in a sec or two; no place I can find to accept old invites. It's a good tool, but it's annoying if you try to use it while playing.

  78. A Google user-avatar

    Ok look Microsoft, I know what my comment before was appropriate, but its the truth. For the last 9 months, i always join open parties, cant join group post, i cant LOAD the app, i cant use my built in ear piece, and its ALWAYS on speaker. What am i supposed to do. I can't even change my picture for the past year mostly it says, "try again later". ITS BEEN A WHOLE YEAR LATER

  79. ‹CherrieCake›-avatar



    I downloaded this ap specifically for easy volume management, but it doesnt control the volume at all. My monitor and Xbox set up was bought at a pawn shop, so it didnt come with a remote for volume. When im in the remote control part of the app, the play/pause features work, but the volume doesnt do anything. There is no possible way to adjust the volume, as i dont have the Kinect thing to use voice. I really hope this gets fixed

  80. DJ TektroNaut-avatar

    Dude Look this is totally unacceptable I like the app and all it has major potential but also issues as well it doesn't respond to new notifications, messages don't seem to be working and it's been like this for months..! Even after uninstalling and reinstalling the app nothing changed. So I know for a fact the problem is on your end. Not only that several friends of mine confirmed this same issue. I have a hard time with group chats and connections with my xbox one x please get it fix already!

  81. Jason Peter-avatar

    I've never seen a large consumer app consistently not work for years like the xbox app. Nothing has changed since around 2015. Friends list doesn't load, notifications are broken, can access certain tabs at all at sometimes. Stellar performance from our friends at xbox I must say.

  82. Kimberly M-avatar

    I would give a higher rate........ But that bug fix you did is the cause of my problem.... You see now I can't share to messenger anymore and that's the only way to show my cousin my gameplay. I have to share to face book then use Facebook to share to messenger!!!! If you fix this I will give it a 5 🌟🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 review.but besides that it's a good app.

    So overall as an Xbox user I think that is very useful but Ive been trying to change my gamer profile and it keeps saying that it can't and that I have to try again later. I've been trying for almost a week now and it still won't change, if you could help me change it it would be awesome. Overall the rest of the app is great

  84. jaime prince-avatar

    It won't let me change my profile picture at all when I go to my profile I got to change gamerpic and I can't change it it says try again in a little bit It has been going on for 4 days now,Also my friends are on phone and they can change there name but I can't and my friends are having the same issue with changing there gamerpic as well

  85. Becki Sage-avatar

    I have tried over and over to purchase a game pass for the last hour. Every time it tells there's a problem on the sites end. Then when I try to get customer support I'm asked to choose from all these options & not one is my current issue. So frustrating.

  86. Nickolas Faz-avatar

    Worst app ever, even apps made by one person work better than this app. Nothing loads and if it does, it takes 10 years. Can't join parties. Everytime you click on something, an error message appears. "Something went wrong :(" fix your God awful app!

  87. Luis Diaz-avatar

    Works and it doesn't work. This app often crashes or just kicks you off for no reason. Other times you can't see what friends are online, instead it gives a "Something went wrong loading this section" message. Very annoying!!

  88. Woof Woof-avatar

    Overall, the app is very good. It let's me navigate through a lot of Xbox stuff, which is convenient. One problem I found is that it doesn't let me upload a new gamer pic. It says "Couldn't upload the image. Please try again in a while." If this could be fixed, I'd appreciate it.

  89. cl s-avatar

    I will be short, this app is terrible. Although it has fully released, I still get glitches that affect my whole experience, they were from the beta and still haven't been fixed. I was personally disappointed and giving this app even 2 stars would be generous.

  90. Brian Salas-avatar

    Main reason I wanted to use the app is for searching who's online ok my friends list and join parties. Yet I struggle sometime to pull up the friends menu. Edit a year later still no fix...Edit years laters still no fix this is really a disgrace. Mutli billion dollar company can't fix a simple mobile app. Edit smh 5 years same friends list glitch that me and my friends both experience still. Edit YEARS and the same bug exist how Microsoft plans to be successful with this bugs still is beyond me

  91. Veleo-avatar

    Xbox and the people who manage this app are the most unprofessional people of all time. I kid you not this app works like a charm 1/100 times I use it. The problems is that is flat out refuses to load my friends and has the audacity to put "sorry :(" I can refresh almost infinite times and it still doesn't load. Making a party and inviting friends is a hassle as well. It still won't load my friends forcing me to constantly close out of the app entirely and reopen and still having to force close

  92. WestCat PLAYZ-avatar

    Over all it's a great app but I might get sometimes where I dont have any clips even though I do but it's fine cause it's most likely my internet. But I have a suggestion for how people make their game clips, you should make it to where people can have their voice recorded during their gameplay or clip going back or starting

  93. x majin Ken x-avatar

    I make videos on youtube, Instagram and use your app to download my gameplay...but somtimes it says i have nothing save/downloaded despite me just making screenshots. Sometimes it doesn't load anything up...And now i can't even sign into my account!! Please fix this app xbox some of us actually need you guys to keep up with the app so we can continue our work as content creators!

  94. Hope T-avatar

    I usaully use this app for messaging and it used to work great. The past month it stopped giving me notifications and messages come through pretty late. Pretty recently I've been getting crashes using this app. Now it completely doesn't let me use the chat by glitching and shutting down. Please fix this issue. Thanks.

  95. Landon Malick-avatar

    I play xbox all the time and honestly this app makes 'having no headphones' no longer a setback. Honestly I lose my headphones all the time and the party feature of not needing headphones is useful. Also the messaging thing is really useful too in case you wanna type faster while talking to your friends so that way you can plan stuff even without a party.

  96. Solipsizzle-avatar

    The voicechat while gamimg is actually so unbelievably terrible, countless disconnections, muting and audio issues and I'm just using sony bluetooth headphones we've gotten it to work properly for 10 minutes max at a time over 6 hours of gameplay without something randomly going wrong and requiring a further 10 mins of troubleshooting, just tragic...

  97. Luis Castellon-avatar

    Its been 3 days and the app still.won't work I uninstalled and reinstalled it but that just made it worse now I cant even sign in every time I try to sign in It tells me unfortunately xbox has stoped Edit: now when I try to sign in it gives me a black screen and Then Gives me the Unfortunately xbox has stopped the apps is really bad right now I wouldn't suggest this to anyone right now

  98. ahh ahh-avatar

    Great app besides the fact that I tried to log in again but i forgot my password. I then hit "forgot my password" and put my email in and tapped "get code" but it said there was an error. Edit - I found a fix. Just try to login and do the forgot password thing and you can reset it that way if this ever happens to you.

  99. Brad Prath-avatar

    Honestly this could be a useful app, but nothing ever loads. It tells me either I have 0 friends online or it cant load my friends list. I rarely can send messages, and it only shows recorded captures from when I first got my xbox. I have a solid internet connection as well, so I know that's not an issue. Needs alot of fixing before I continue to use it.

  100. Foxycaligrl-avatar

    Only reason I dropped it to 4 stars is because I cant see the apps that i have like sling, disney+, hulu and netflix and i should be able to use the xbox as if it were the controller and plug my earbuds into my phone and use the tv & xbox. I did learn u can have regular cable on there from the app just need to figure out how to set that up and watch cable off the xbox! What app is needed to use ur cable?!
