How to start a party on Xbox One

Parties allow you to group up and chat with your friends through your Xbox One. You can do this with a single pal or up to 12 friends.

Note To start or join a party, you (and your participating friends) 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 a person from your Friends list

  1. To return to the Home screen, press the Xbox button, or say "Xbox, go home."
  2. Scroll left on the Home screen to open the guide.
  3. Under Friends, select the friend you want to party with.
  4. Select Send party invite, or press the X button on the controller to invite them.

Now you can see your party in the guide.

Join a party that your friends are already in
