Xbox Live’s Major Nelson confirmed on Reddit that Microsoft are working on improvements to the Xbox One party system.
Responding to criticism on Reddit, MajorNelson (real name Larry Hyrb) stated that he can’t offer a timeline on improvements but that things will get better.
I had a meeting today about much of this and I can say that things will get better. I can’t offer a timeline of a list of what till be addressed first, but we are aware of the issue and things will get better.
The problems with party chat on the Xbox One have been widely addressed by annoyed gamers, as the system doesn’t run parties in the background as on the Xbox 360 and instead forces users into using a separate Party app and games not allowing players to chat in a party while playing separate games.
