The company tested the feature with some users for the past few weeks, but this week it's being rolled out to all users.

Until the 6th generation of systems - PlayStation 2, Game Cube, Dreamcast and the first Xbox -, consoles and mobile phones were two separate elements. Players can then communicate via text or voice chat after joining the party.

It gives the service a more party chat-friendly goal, so you can take the conversation you may have been having while knee deep in Destiny 2 with you on the commute to work or plan community and multiplayer gaming sessions on your way home.

Late past year it was reported that Microsoft was testing out its Xbox Party Chat system for mobile devices. Of course being with the talking headset is the most comfortable, but it is a great measure of when we get caught out or without power / want to start the Xbox.

The Xbox Party Chat app is available for both iOS and Android devices, so head on over to the iTunes App Store or Google Play for the download, if you haven't checked it out already.

For its part, Nintendo does something similar with Switch, putting voice chat in the mobile app rather than making players connect a headset to the console.
