Humh, that is a good idea here, I wish it did tell people when friends are online (I do miss that from the 360)

Having a "Favorite" come online and the system notifies you sounds like a great idea, hope they decide to put it in sometime in the future.


Yeah. Though the option of letting you appear to be offline just in case you're feeling antisocial is a great one.

Think the whole friends/chat stuff is going to get updated soon I hope. They will get it squared away. That is not one thing I worry about with MS.


There's a huge upgrade of the friends/party/chat setup in the works, but my understanding is that it could take a while to work on. I guess they're trying to move it from being treated as an app to being a core component like it always should have been.


I'm not sure why MS would think this change was a good idea. But I'm sure it will get updated.

As of now I don't think you can. I believe they removed this feature because the expanded the friends list.


I agree. No way they could have forgotten to add this feature.

I, like many of you, assumed that your "favorites" would show a notification when they logged in.

This could prevent the issue of the 1000 friend list expansion causing an overwhelming amount of popups.

As many people already said I am sure that several improvements are incoming.

While we're at it I'd rather not have the friends feed be the first thing I see when I try to go to my friends list. If I cared enough to check out my friends activities I certainly would be capable of navigating to that list. That extra few seconds it takes to start the feed to load before I bring up who is online is slightly annoying.

Both the PS4 and Xbox One lack this. It's baffling.


Quoted for the gods honest truth.
