Posted on February 15, 2015 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 0 Comments

Microsoft on Friday issued its second app update for Windows 10 Technical Preview 2 users, with the Xbox app picking up minor updates to the navigation bar, the Friends functionality, and Settings.

As with other app updates, you’ll get this one automatically.

Here’s what’s new. It’s not much.

Updated navigation bar. A new smiley face in the top navigation bar can be used to send feedback about the app to the product team. You can also gain access to the Xbox app forums and rate the Xbox app.


New Friends features. As with the similar UI on, the Friends user experience has been updated with a Suggested section for suggested friends. (You can click on “See all” to browse the entire list, which includes people you may know, of course, but also Xbox VIPs.) A search box at the top of the app helps you find specific friends quickly.


Settings. Microsoft says it added “small fit and finish items” to the Settings page.
