So you've downloaded the Xbox Game Bar, and you're looking forward to that Xbox Live Party that you've been planning.
But you've just realised that some of the key movers and shakers aren't currently on your friend list.
Ordinarily, this might be cause for concern; consternation, even.
But don't worry, help is at hand, to guide you to what you need to know.
The Xbox app
The Xbox App is the starting point on this particular journey. You can download it here.
The app gives you access to games using Xbox Game Pass, as well as seeing and interacting with friends online.
But how exactly do you add someone to your friend list?
Here's what you need to do...
Adding friends on the Xbox app
Start by signing in to the Xbox app on your PC.
Look for the Friends and Clubs section on the Home page.
From there, go to the Find People or Clubs box, and input the gamertag of the person you wish to add (make sure the name is spelled correctly). Then press enter.
When you find the right person, select Add Friend, to add that gamertag to your friend's list.
You can specify how much information you share by deciding if they are a Friend or Favourite.
