Xbox beta app updated with Clubs and Looking for Group (LFG) on Android and Windows 10 is available now, Microsoft while releasing these features to Xbox One Preview Program users earlier this month promised.
iOS Xbox app user looking for these features probably have to wait more or presumeably until it’s ready for the public, as Major Nelson in a tweet says:
@Krose7298 The iOS app store beta process is a bit more restrictive – so no ETA

Changelog for Android and Windows:
- Clubs – Clubs are gamer-created and managed groups that can help you meet people and grow communities of gamers who love the same things you do.
- Looking for Group (LFG) – Need to find players to help unlock an Achievement, complete a weekly quest, or build a team? Xbox Looking for Group allows you to post a “want ad” that other players can see and answer.
Microsoft told us that the update will be ready in time for the holidays; however, the version number of the Xbox One Preview is 1610, which would imply that it will be released in October, 2016.
In a latest post, Xbox team is explaning everything you need to know about Xbox Play Anywhere says, first and foremost, “to take advantage of Xbox Play Anywhere, you’ll need to have Windows 10 Anniversary Edition update installed on your PC,” as well as the “latest update on your Xbox One console.”
The biggest advantage of Anywhere probably is—it allow players to buy a game digitally through Xbox Store or Windows Store, and “play on both platforms” at “no additional cost.”
Plus, it brings all your “game progress, DLC [including add-ons, season passes, consumables and in-game unlocks], gamerscore, achievements, and all saved on Xbox Live,” so you can “pick up where you left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC..”
Yes. When you play an Xbox Play Anywhere game, your game progress, DLC (including add-ons, Season Passes, consumables and in-game unlocks), Gamerscore and Achievements are all saved on Xbox Live, so you can pick up where you left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC.
Then, simply log into your Xbox Live/Microsoft account and all your Play Anywhere games will be available to download. Keep in mind, you should be using the same Microsoft Account (specifically, email address), that was used while making purchase.
You should sign into Windows and Xbox using the same ID, to make purchase on “either” and “play on both.”
Also, at any single point in time, you can only sign into a game on “one Xbox One console” or “one Windows 10 PC.” “You cannot be signed into the same game on both platforms at the same time.” team stated.
Since Play Anywhere only applies to ‘only’ digital games, titles are offered from multiple locations such as: “Your Xbox One console, Xbox App, Windows Store, Xbox.com, and Microsoft.com,” writes xbox team.
