    'My Xbox Live' comes to Android


    PaulOBrien

    Microsoft have released their 'My Xbox Live' application, previously only available on Windows Phone and iOS, for Android.

    The application, which is a little light on features compared to other platforms, includes the ability to...

    • View, manage, and message friends
    • View and compare your achievement progress with friends
    • Read and Edit your full LIVE profile (name, bio, motto)
    • See your 3-D Avatar and customize it while on-the-go
    • Access your recent activity and manage your Beacons
    • Stay connected to the Xbox LIVE community via Spotlight

    The free application requires an Xbox LIVE account to sign in and is available for most Android 2.2+ smartphones, with WGVA screen resolution or higher.

    In use, it's very slick and has a decent amount of features for a first version. It feels a little strange though... the UI is extremely 'Windows Phone'y, but that aside the presentation (especially in the avatar customisation section) is top notch.

    A sound first start Microsoft... :)

    Grab it now from the Google Play Store.

    You would have expected a new app to be in line with iOS though wouldn't you? This doesn't have any of the features that today's iOS update brings; XBOX Companion for example :(

    ok installed looked around, bored now.

    shame you cant schedule xbox demos and purchases from it, so that when your xbox is turned on, it immediately downloads them

    • can you please tell me how you signed the zip file because with zipsigner it doesnt work 😕 says footer error in recovery Greetings
    • Hello. I've been using this smartphone since 2016, I went through the official upgrade to Android 5.1.1 and then to 6.0.1. Long story short I'm now with TWRP 3.2.3-0 and Lineage 14.1 (Android 7.1.2). I found some interesting bugs: one is that if you have low battery, about to self power off, and you switch on the torch, it stays on even after the phones is powered off, and you can't turn it off whatsoever, except plugging in the charger and switch on the phone again I guess, but I didn't try it. The matter is that if you let the torch on to let the battery discharge completely, and the light goes off, when you charge it again and switch on the phone you can't switch on the torch anymore, even tho the system claims is on, it doesn't beam any light from the flash led. The only way to "reset" this status is to open the phone, removing the back cover, unscrew 3 screws that hold a tiny bar and manually disconnect the battery (most rightside connector) and then reconnect it. Not even holding the power button helps. Another bug is that if you turn on the phone, and then, without putting it on stand-by, check with some kind of cpu monitoring app the cpu cores activity, the less powerful cores of the A53 are awake and running. If you put the phone in stand by and then re-awake it up, they are always on sleep or "disconnected" or similar status. Even tho it seems that this doesn't affect performance, so it seems that they doesn't show correct running status but still works. Last but the most important: the phone THROTTLES at room temperature!!! If you try a cpu intensive app, the cores throttles at 800 MHz or less, and if it heats more it goes down even to 200 MHz stuttering everything! I don't know if it gots bad thermal spread design or is it a thermal sensor bug, since in system monitor apps it shows temperature above 49~50 in idle while room temp is 20 to 23 °C and over 67-68 while running full calculations! Can anybody confirm or else suggest me some solutions to these issues? Thanks.
    • It worked well on my liquid a1 (running custom rogers rom). Should work on any acer based 2.2 roms I think. But I cant guarantee 😉 use at own risk.
    • I have experience this fine product by Honor. There are some features which are competing with expense mobile companies as well.I'm looking forward to buy honor 20 pro for some latest updated version of it.
