Setting up multiplayer in backward-compatible Xbox games

When you're playing an Xbox 360 game on Xbox One, it's like you're on Xbox 360. Xbox One apps like Friends and Party don't interact with your game.

In an Xbox 360 game, send game invites and start parties the way you would on Xbox 360: using the Xbox Guide. Open the guide by pressing the View button and Menu button at the same time, then choose Friends or Party and follow the instructions.

In Original Xbox games, online features such as multiplayer and leaderboards don’t work on Xbox One. However, you can still use Xbox One parties to chat while playing alongside others, in whatever game they’re playing.
