Xbox app on Windows 10 – February 2015 Feature Summary

The Xbox app on Windows 10 has an updated version available starting today. Our goal is to continue to provide monthly updates of the Xbox app, to collect feedback and ideas from our community. There are a few small updates this month with more to come going forward.

You will automatically get updated to the February version of the Xbox app, when it becomes available in the Store (Beta). Once you receive the update, your version number should be 2.2.1502.02017 or higher. You can verify the version number of the Xbox app under Settings. The following features have been updated this month:

• Top Navigation Bar. The smiley face  can be used to send feedback about the app to the product team, get access to forums for the Xbox app, and you can now rate the Xbox app.

• Friends. The user experience for Friends has been updated so that you now see Suggested Friends under a Suggestions header at the top of the Friends list, with a See all button to browse the entire list of VIPs on Xbox and People you May Know. Additionally, you can now start typing in the Friends search box to instantly find specific friends.

• Settings. Small fit and finish items were added to the settings page.

Game Description: The Escapists is a prison break simulation that provides players the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life. While the aim of the game is simply to escape, the detail is in the execution. (Don’t say the word execution too loud in a prison). Keep a low profile or go out guns blazing. As long as you escape in the end, that’s all that matters.
