Save for sporadic support for purchasable digital keys from Amazon or currency codes from the Microsoft Store, it's pretty hard to simply gift someone a game on Xbox Live and the Windows Store. That's set to change, however.

Speaking on Twitter, Xbox VP Mike Ybarra confirmed that digital gifting is just around the corner.

I know from conversations with Xbox staff at E3 2017 that digital gifting is a high priority for both the Xbox and Windows Store teams. Allowing people more opportunities to spend money is a no-brainer, particularly as we move towards the holiday season. I'd expect to see digital gifting for both Xbox One and Windows Store before the Fall-Winter games rush this year, but we have no firm date as of yet.
