Game Gifting Comes to All Xbox One Users

Posted on November 14, 2017 by Mehedi Hassan in Xbox, Xbox One with 2 Comments

Microsoft is bringing game gifting to all Xbox One users today just in time for the holidays. Redmond has been testing the new game gifting capability on the Microsoft Store for months now, and it’s finally bringing the feature to all Xbox One users.

Xbox One owners can use game gifting to send Xbox One games, DLCs, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold subscriptions as gifts to their friends or family. The feature is available for Windows 10 users on the Microsoft Store as well, so you’ll be able to gift games from your PC and Mobile devices as well. When you send a gift to someone, they will receive a code which they can redeem to get the game on their device.

Game Gifting is part of a wider set of features that are coming to the Xbox One in the coming weeks. Microsoft is working on some minor new features for the Xbox One, including a revamped setup experience that relies on the cloud. The company is testing most of these new additions with Xbox Insiders at the moment, but they’ll arrive for all users sometime soon.
