Enable Chat between Xbox 360 and Xbox One players

Actually it's possible to chat with other people on Xbox 360 when I'm playing on Xbox One. It will be great to do that.

The chat systems across Xbox 360 and Xbox One are very different and enabling universal chat between those systems would take a lot of effort. We’ve enabled Xbox One users to play Xbox 360 games through backward compatibility and while they do that they can party chat with 360 customers while on Xbox One. We’ve decided to focus our efforts on improving the overall Xbox One chat experience, and adding new features such as 16 person party chat and party chat relay servers for users with NAT issues. – Mike Ybarra (gamertag: Qwik)

    Hey PozitiveLock, you cannot do this between PS4 and PS3 either. Additionally, I can party chat with friends on 360 when I am playing a backwards compatible game. If I need to talk to someone otherwise, send them a message through the console. Lastly, since you want to tout the Playstation so hard, PS3 and Playstation Network had the worst friends system and party system of any I have ever used back when I had a PS3. I would not be able to chat with my friends on Madden for example once the game session exited. I am sure it could be vastly improved at this point but I cannot speak from experience. At the time, it was quite simply, a joke. The PS Fanboys all said, why would I need to be in a party with someone when I can send a message. Biggest group of hypocrites ever. If you are one of them, go use your PS4.

    Don't mean to pour on too much hate, but to cite reasons like this as to why console sales are behind PS4 is ridiculous.

    I agree it would be nice to have someone at random join a party chat if they were on the 360 and my party was on Xbox One, but it is not that big of a deal ultimately. I can just run the 360 emulator and invite them to a party if it is that important.

    This idea has been here since June 2014... that's two years you could have worked on it.

    If you're so worried about "focus[ing] our efforts on improving the overall Xbox One chat experience, and adding new features such as 16 person party chat and party chat relay servers for users with NAT issues", you would be willing to entertain this idea as one of those "new features". Several years into having the system, communications still lags or drops out, stutters or just mutes, and the likes.

    To say that enabling chat between two consoles is too difficult to implement while publicly saying that you may be able to implement a backwards compatibility mode to play original xbox v1 games at some point is asinine at best, absurd at worst. If you spent enough energy working on the communications as you did backwards compatibility, you may actually receive compliments from your consumers, but alas, it's Microsoft and if you can't make a profit, it's not worth it (ie backwards compatible to make people by the free stock of old 360 games or xbox games during gold sales).

    No wonder xbox sales are flagging further behind PS4 sales.

    I'm sure if you took a survey you would discover that the number one overall Xbox One chat experience improvement at all users want to see is the ability to chat between the consoles. This would definitely make the Xbox One more desirable.

  • Stuphen MuffinsStuphen Muffins commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There should definitely be chat enabled in between these two consoles. Some of my friends are all the way on the other side of the world and it would be nice to chat with them through the console .

  • ACIDIC CRIMSONACIDIC CRIMSON commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I mean comon u should let us talk to friends on the 360. No matter how defrent they r. I mean we can send voice messages why not chat. They cant be that difrent.

    This is the reason why me and some friends selling the Xbox one !
    time to go back to 360
    No chat between one and 360 is ridiculous

    Come on guys this should be at the top of the list. I have borderlands on the X1 and my friend bought it for his 360 I can hear him but he can't hear me we tried in game chat and party but it doesn't my mic doesn't work. Please fix this.

  • KeohahnKeohahn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    What's the point in enhancing the xbox one chat when many would like to chat with their friends still using the xbox 360? I understand that it's tough but personally you should look at the demand then look at improving after. You guys are doing a great job though!

  • bix33bix33 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Team Xbox, I think you mean in game chat, not party chat. I was playing Gears of War 3 on the XB1 and m buddy was playing it on the 360 and while we could chat with one another through in game chat, party chat between the two consoles would not work. We weren't even receiving one another's party invitations.

    Add 360 friends party support to Xbox One Guide

    On the NXOE Guide, add the ability to invite 360 friends to a party without the need to be in a 360 game.

    Who would play a 360 game to talk with your friends on the 360 when you really want to play Forza 6 or Fallout 4?

  • Sir MoustachioSir Moustachio commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I can't be the only person who wants to party up with their buddies on Xbox 360. A couple of my good friends have Xbox 360's, and I can't party up with them or talk to them. In order for us to play anything together we have to either go without talking or talk over the phone, Which I can assure you is a huge pain in the rear. Please make cross platform chatting a reality.

  • algrazialgrazi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please allow Xbox 360 users to join parties initiated by xbox one users (And vice versa!). What is the point of backwards compatibility if you can't talk with your friends cross-platform?

  • ANIMEFAN4EVER1ANIMEFAN4EVER1 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    yes please allow us to use xbox to party chat with a ead set to 360 user and no do not force us to load a 360 game on the one
