How to view your friends' activity in the Xbox app on Windows 10

The Activity feed lets you see and comment on your friends' recent achievements and game clips.

You can see the recent activities of all your friends through the Activity feed on the Home screen of the Xbox app, or you can see the activity timeline of just one of your friends on their profile page.

When you open the Xbox app, the first screen you see is the Home screen. Home allows you to quickly see what's been going on with your friends since you last signed in.
