With the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft promised a new revamped chat system known as a Party Chat. The proposed chat would allow a group of friends to chat simultaneously, while across various games and applications. Each lobby supports up to seven individuals, but issues have plagued the feature since day one.
A good number of Xbox owners are having issues accessing the Party Chat service, and some are even being kicked from parties after they have joined. As one can imagine, the social connectivity that Party Chat provides is an integral part of the Xbox Live experience.
Xbox’s Major Nelson (AKA: Larry Hyrb), posted a reply in response to an upset user post on Reddit. The post complained about the user have issues joining his friends in a party chat while playing the hit game, Ryse: Son of Rome. Major Nelson’s official response stated that he “had a meeting today about much of this and I can say that things will get better”. Nelson was unable to give a timeline for a fix, but wants to assure us that the people at Microsoft are aware of the issue and working to fix it.
Issues when launching new technology is nothing new. Microsoft sold over one million consoles within the first twenty four hours of its availability; out of those consoles, a small minority (although larger than Microsoft would like), have been plagued with various hardware and software related issues (such as the now famous "noisy blu-ray drive"). For the early adopters out there who are having issues, sit tight, as Microsoft will have fixes and updates for the issues you are facing.
