How to find your Facebook friends on Xbox Live for Windows 10 and Xbox One

You can now get Xbox Live friend suggestions by linking your Facebook account to Xbox Live. It will then suggest your Facebook friends who have also connected their accounts to the network. Here's how you can join the party.

  1. On your Xbox One, double-tap the Xbox button on your controller to open the Guide menu.
  2. Navigate to your friend list and select Suggestions.
  3. Select Find Facebook friends.
  4. Enter your Facebook credentials.
  5. Add any friends who are on the list.

It's as easy as that!

Alternatively, you can achieve the same functionality on a Windows 10 PC or Windows 10 Mobile device using the built-in Xbox app.

Using the app:

  1. Find the app on your PC by typing "Xbox" into the Start Menu, or by searching through your app list on a Windows 10 Mobile device.
  2. Go to the settings section at the bottom of the hamburger menu, depicted as a cogwheel.
  3. Select Link Facebook account, and then enter your log-in details.

The Xbox One is set to get even more social in the future with the addition of Clubs, Arena and Looking for Group. Additionally, thanks to the Universal Windows Platform, the console could one day receive the Facebook app itself, currently available on Windows 10 PCs and phones. We'll just have to wait and see!
