A new update rolling out for the Xbox app today allows players to voice chat with a party through Android or iOS devices.

To access the feature, open the Xbox app and tap the icon with multiple people at the top and start a party by inviting people. From there, simply speak into your phone, and make sure your device can access your microphone as well. You can also manage the party with actions such as muting or removing people.

Since December, Xbox users have participated in voice chat beta tests for the app. Previously, party chat functionality was limited to Xbox consoles, and on Windows 10 in recent years.

Download the Xbox app for Android here, and on iOS here.
