Xbox One Friends App Detailed in New Vid
Written By
View author's profile

Friends will work a little differently on Xbox One, with the standard Friends list now joined by Followers the latter of which can see a limited view of your profile, such as achievements and videos. You can choose how much or how little they can see by fiddling with your privacy settings. You don't have to follow back followers if you don't want to. It's a bit like Twitter.

You'll also be able to assign Friends to a favourites list, meaning you can find and invite Friends you play with more regularly by grouping them together. Your Xbox 360 Friends will automatically be invited to join your list on Xbox One, and you can now have up to 1000 Friends, as you'll already know.

There's more on the salient details that have already been covered at length here, over on the Xbox News Wire, but you can get the lowdown and a quick walkthrough of Xbox One's Friends app in the video narrated by Major Nelson below. Yeah, just watch that. Xbox One is out on November 22nd.

First impression, looks okay to me. It could and probably will get a bit of a polish up before the console release.

I wonder if we will get spammed by the dicks who send ''follow me I'll follow back'' brigade that's rife on Twitter.

This is what a lot of us who are still on the fence have been looking forward to - actual videos of the Xbox One UI. It has some ok ideas, even if it seems a bit clunky. Looks a kinda plain too, I wonder if MS will even bother with dashboard themes this time around.

@3 I was just thinking about that. Lets hope Microsoft didn't fudge up and kept the Block feature.

Trigger Happy 10 G - You pressed the right Trigger 10 times.

Honestly, i still have my doubts about this whole Reputation system.
People give you bad rep. if you beat them fair and square.
Apart from that, it looks rather interesting and im looking forward to it.
Still quite a dissapointment that it doesnt come out on November 22nd here.

I'm with #11 on this one, there are a lot of trolls on Xbox Live that would happily bad rep you just for shits and giggles. I hope there are things in place so that you can't get your rep fucked up by said trolls.

not to worried about "following" people.

I don't use or like Twitter. so this idea just isn't appealing to me.

I will just keep the 20 people on my friends list. If they decide to go for an Xbox One. I tend to stick to offline gaming as its escapism for me rather than being social.

@24 it will be your fault went everyone has a bad rep. people like you who block people for no reason is why people on.... xb1 will have less than good rep. just blocking to block is a bad thing. just set your profile to private to avoid our and block users who deserve it

@26 He never said he just blocks people for the sake of blocking them and I agree that the rep thing really isn't needed
