Looking for Group is a new addition to Xbox Live, hoping to bring gamers together over online multiplayer matches. In a time where a majority of titles are beginning to introduce online aspects, it's sometimes hard to bring together your closest friends into a single session. Looking for Group hopes to eliminate this issue, serving as a way for players to match together based on personal preferences.

If you're hoping to find some online teammates, you'll have to create a post on a game's Looking for Group board. Here's how to get your own listings up on Xbox Live on both Xbox One and Windows 10!
