It’s really an amazing and exciting experience to play the games along with our friends. Xbox has made this possible with its new update which allows you to create Beacons using which you can play the games along with your friends. Beacons allows you to invite your friends to play the game which you are playing and vice versa.
- Just select the Beacons and Activity option and choose ‘Set Beacon’ option to add your friends.
- Now, you will get an option to choose an activity which you want to share with your friends. Activity usually will be the game, so choose one, and proceed further.
- Now, you will get the window where you can add comment by sharing it with your social network account. That’s it, now click on ‘Set Beacon’ and your new Beacon will set for that particular activity (game).
You can also check the 5 previous games which are played by you using an option “My Activity”. There is another option called ‘Friends Activity’ which allows you to see the games playing by your friends.
Once you create the Beacons, then your friends will be intimated by an invitation of the same and when they click ‘Join Game’ on your profile then it’s all done.
How to manage Beacons:
- Just go to the Beacons you created and select the one which you want to update or delete.
- Now, you will get an option using which you can update or delete the Beacon.
Apart from the Beacons which we created, we can also join a game using the Beacon of our friends. Yes, it is possible by Xbox Live, this will intimate you about the games playing by your friends on whom you set a Beacon. Then, you can just navigate to your friends profile and can click on ‘Join game’ to start playing. If you are using Windows phone then you can see the Beacons by opening Games-Xbox Live- Requests.
