How to manage your activity feed in the Xbox app on Windows 10

The activity feed in the Xbox app on Windows 10 lets you communicate with your friends. You can make a public post by selecting Got something to say?, or you can comment on any of your own or your friends’ achievements and Game DVR game clips.

To find out more about managing your own or your child’s privacy settings, see How to set up parental controls for games on Windows 10.

Who can comment on your activity feed

For adults, anyone can comment on posts in your activity feed. To change who can add comments, update your privacy settings under Communicate with voice and text (Xbox 360: Voice and Text). You can do this at account.xbox.com.

To access these settings in the Xbox app, follow these steps:

  1. Select Settings.
  2. On the General tab, scroll down to Privacy and click Xbox.com.
  1. From the Xbox.com Privacy & online safety page, scroll down on the Privacy tab and then update the option for Communicate with voice and text (Xbox 360: Voice and Text).

Adults can also see comments and captions made by anyone else on Xbox Live. You can change this setting in your privacy settings under Share stuff people make (Xbox 360: Member Content) at account.xbox.com.

To access these settings in the Xbox app, follow these steps:

  1. Select Settings.
  2. On the General tab, scroll down to Privacy and select Xbox.com.
  3. From the Xbox.com Privacy & online safety page, scroll down on the Privacy tab and then update the option for Communicate with voice and text (Xbox 360: Voice and Text).

In both cases, teenagers and children start with more restrictive settings. See How to set up parental controls for games on Windows 10.

Who sees your activity feed

Anyone can find out what's going on in an adult's activity feed. (Teenagers and children start with more restrictive settings.) Here are other things that they can do:

  • “Like” something in your feed
  • Share something in your feed with someone else
  • See who “liked” or shared something
  • Read your friends' comments

To change your activity feed preferences, update your privacy settings under See your game and app history (Xbox 360: Game History) at account.xbox.com.

To access these settings in the Xbox app, follow these steps:

  1. Select Settings.
  2. On the General tab, scroll down to Privacy and select Xbox.com.
  3. From the Xbox.com Privacy & online safety page, scroll down on the Privacy tab and then update the option for See your game and app history (Xbox 360: Game History).
