Look out for the Xbox holiday update, which is beginning to roll out new features such as Clubs, Looking for Group, Achievement Rarity, Group Messaging and more to the broader Xbox community on the Xbox App for Windows 10 and on Xbox One.

Xbox Live becomes even more social as gamers can now unite across devices, with gamer-created and managed groups that can help you meet people and grow communities of gamers who love the same things you do.

Club members can set up parties, play games, share content and easily communicate using voice and text chat with the Club across Xbox One and the Xbox app on Windows 10.

There is no update available for the iOS app just yet, but as Mike Ybarra has confirmed that the iOS app will be updated soon:

While it doesn't contain everything that you'll see on Windows 10, there is a subset of features available for now: “Join Xbox Live Clubs to interact with like-minded gamers,” “Use Looking for Group (LFG) to find a party to play a game, and “Stay connected with multi-user conversations in Group Messaging.”

You can download Xbox app for Windows, Android, and iOS.

Those on Windows 10 PCs or phone can expect the updated features to hit their Xbox app starting today. Xbox One owners can expect their system to also update starting today with the new features.
