Xbox Live’s “clubs” update gives players a digital space to hang out

Once the update goes live, players will have access to a large range of social features. Clubs allow players to create new, pre-defined groups with tools like persistent chat that allow friends to hang out. Players will also be fully in control of membership parameters, and can open clubs to anyone around the world. What’s more, Microsoft will be offering an Xbox Live app that brings all club features to Android and iOS.

“Clubs is sort of our version of guilds and clans in MMOs,” director of program management Mike Ybarra explained.
