Playing with your friends is a major aspect of Xbox Live and Microsoft keeps on introducing new ways to tell what your friends are doing. Today, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, Larry Hryb, announced that the team is rolling out a new feature on Xbox One where you can get more information on a game your friends are playing. If you open it up, you'll see that there's a link to play it there, an option to install or buy it, and open its Official Club.
