With Xbox One, you can have up to 1,000 friends. Having someone on your friends list allows you to find the person online quickly and get set for your next gaming adventure.
To get to the Home screen, press the Xbox button on your controller or say “Xbox, go home”.
Scroll right to the Friends hub and select the FRIENDS tile.
Select Find someone, and then search for a gamertag. Note Pay close attention to gamertag spelling and spacing.
Select Add friend, and that person’s gamertag will be added to your friends list. Note Your friends will see you as a follower and will be able to see the info you share with friends, which is based on your privacy settings.
