12-person party chat available now on Xbox One

Microsoft
is introducing 12-person party chat to Xbox One from today — and you
don’t have to be in the preview programme to use it.
Major Nelson confirmed that the feature, which received 2200 votes on Xbox Feedback, will roll out immediately, and won’t require a console update. 
Naturally, 12-person party chat is also available on the Xbox App on Windows 10, too.
If you are in the  New Xbox One Experience Preview, you’ll also be
getting an update later today that adds a few new features. Here they
are, direct from the Major himself…
  • Party text chat adds more communication options. In the New Xbox One
    Experience, text chat joins voice chat as a way to communicate with
    your friends. At the bottom of the ‘Your Party’ page, you will see a
    button to ‘Show text chat.’ This will let you participate in the
    conversation. Party text chat will also come to the Beta Xbox App for
    Windows 10.
  • A streamlined Game DVR experience. We have combined the
    functionality of the Game DVR snap app and the former Upload app into
    one easy-to-use app called Game DVR. In full screen mode, you can use
    this app to view your game clips and screenshot captures. When snapped,
    you can use Game DVR to start or stop recordings.
  • New animated avatars. They are back and better than ever. You showed
    us that you are passionate about Avatars with many requests on Xbox
    Feedback. The new avatars will be animated on your profile and will
    start showing up in other new places in the new experience. If you
    prefer a gamerpic, you can easily switch your image.
  • Updated menu for quick access to common actions. The menu button on
    your controller lets you pin an app or game to Home, launch a recently
    played game, or quit an app or game with just the touch of a button.
  • Access new settings in the Guide. Adding to settings already
    included in the guide, like adjusting the headset volume, you can now
    turn your console off or restart your console directly from the Guide.
Former Xbox boss, Robbie Bach, believes that there will be another generation of consoles… but they probably won’t look, or operate, much like they do today.
