Xbox App on Windows 10 finally got a light theme

Microsoft has just released a new update for the Xbox App on Windows 10 with some long requested features, including support for a light theme. This is probably done ahead of the next big update release for the Xbox One console, which will add a similar light theme option for the entire UI.

Xbox App Light Theme

The update is now available for the app on both PC and Mobile platforms. You'll find the updated theme options in the settings menu: you can now choose between dark, light and using system colors. The same options should arrive in the next update for mobile versions of the app on both Android and iOS but there is no fixed schedule for that.

There are some new additions to the app's features in this release. Here's what mentioned in the official change log for the 31.32.11001.00000 release:

  • New for party chat: Control your party's chat volume, and choose a specific audio device.
  • Get the bird's-eye view: Brackets have been added for Killer Instinct Tournaments.
  • We now take you live! Watch game broadcasts in clubs.
  • Co-stream with friends: Once you get an invite, just accept to go to and co-stream.

Xbox app for Windows 10 comes preinstalled and should be updated to this release automatically, but if you don't have it installed or prefer installing the update manually, feel free to check it out in the Windows Store.
