Original story: An update for the Xbox app on Android devices suggests Microsoft is about to introduce Party voice chat via mobile device.

Similar to the Nintendo Switch’s entire online platform, an update to the Xbox app on the Google Play Store allows players to join a Party chat without being connected to a console. The update, not yet available on Windows Phone or iOS devices, was spotted by keen Reddit users.

We’ll let you know when the Xbox app is updated on other platforms. Until then, enjoy your newfound freedom, Android users.

Are you excited to access Party voice chat via your smartphone?
