How to start a party in the Xbox app

Parties let you gather and chat with people through the Xbox app in Windows 10. Your party can have up to 16 people, including the host.

Note To start or join a party, you (and those participating) must have a current Xbox Live Gold subscription and be signed in with the gamertag associated with that subscription.

Start a party with your friends

There are several ways to start a party.

Invite people from your Friends list

  1. From your Friends & clubs list, choose the friends you want to party with.
  2. Right-click a gamertag, and select Invite to Party.

    Now you can see your party in the Party tab.

Join a party that your friends are already in

  1. From your Friends & clubs list, select the friend you want to party with.
  2. On that friend's gamercard, select Join party.

Start your own party and invite multiple friends

  1. From the Home screen, go to the Party tab in the upper-right corner.
  2. Click Start a Party.
  3. Click the add (+) button at the bottom of the page.
  4. Choose the Friends you want to party with (up to 15 friends).
