The Xbox app for Windows 10 has been updated with new features

As part of the Xbox One Summer Update, the Xbox app for Windows 10 can now upload edited GameDVR clips, share directly to Twitter, link your friends to the Windows 10 People app and much more.

As listed by the Xbox One app's changelog, here are all the latest features:

  • Edit and share GameDVR clips with any editor
  • Share to Twitter from Xbox app
  • Top PC game support, including online presence and game hubs
  • Customize your profile - enhanced!
  • Better suggestion engine for friends
  • See your Xbox friends in the People app on Windows
  • Performance and bug fixes

Additionally, this update disables achievement and GameDVR clip sharing by default, as detailed by the message you'll see in your feed depicted above. The app was also recently updated for Windows 10 Mobile, bringing about similar levels of polish in addition to some of the newest features that are relevant for mobile.

The Xbox app now features game hubs for dozens of major PC games, including Overwatch, Counter Strike Global Offensive, and League of Legends. By pressing the Windows key and 'G', you can save, edit, and share clips with friends on Xbox Live, even if you game solely on PC.

This latest update prepares the app for the Xbox One Summer Update, which should land any day now. Stay tuned to Windows Central for the latest Xbox One news.

  • And still we can't share moments from games like Overwatch or Star Wars Battlefront which are on XBOX, too but not bought in the Windows Store on PC :/
  • I need to remember to change my GameDVR settings when I get home - I've been recording 5 minute clips of Rocket League every time I just want to capture a quick goal, a minute or 30 secs might be more appropriate. Maybe Cortana commands will come like on Xbox "Hey Cortana, record the last 30 seconds"
