Instagram-style stories are now available for Xbox players

Social sharing is coming to Xbox’s iOS and Android apps.

The Xbox app for iOS and Android is getting an upgrade that includes a new social sharing feature from Microsoft. Instagram-and Snapchat-style stories will allow players to show off their progress by posting screenshots, gameplay videos, and milestones for others to see. You’ll be able to respond to other people’s stories with your own thoughts and feelings.

The stories can be found on the app’s home screen. Access the channel and touch the + symbol on your gamertag to publish a clip, screenshot, or achievement from the gallery. Before you share your tale, you’ll be able to edit the text and add a caption.

Xbox tales will be available for 72 hours, but Instagram and Snapchat stories normally disappear after 24 hours. If your pals can get away from the new Halo Infinite season for long enough to read your updates, you’ll have a better chance of getting their attention.

The May update for Xbox consoles includes another new function. Quality of Service (QoS) tagging is a term used by Microsoft. According to the document, party chat, console broadcasting, and multiplayer games are all examples of latency-sensitive outbound networking traffic. According to the company, this feature could help keep your gaming experience going if there is a lot of traffic on the web.

The Settings app is where you’ll find options for controlling Quality of Service (QoS) labels. After selecting the General option, go to the network settings and then to the advanced options. The QoS tagging parameters will then be displayed. DSCP tagged packets can be tagged with IPv4 and IPv6 tags on wired or wireless networks. In order to use WMM tagging, you must have a Wi-Fi connection.

In Australia, these new features are now available. Other regions will get them soon, according to Microsoft.
