Party chat is already in testing with the Xbox beta app on Android, and now it looks like it's the iPhone's turn as well. Microsoft has rolled out an update to members of its beta testing program for Xbox on iOS, bringing along testing for Xbox Live's party chat on the platform (via OnMSFT).
While TestFlight makes beta testing on iOS is an inherently much more limited affair than Android, this update lays the groundwork for mobile party chat. And if you've ever wished you could chat with your Xbox pals while away from your Xbox, that's good news.
If you are lucky enough to be a part of the Xbox beta on iOS, you should be able to grab the update through TestFlight now. Alternatively, you can register to participate, but you'll have to wait to be allowed into the program by Microsoft. For everyone else, we'd expect the feature to make its way to the release version of the Xbox app before too long.
