Major Nelson of Xbox has just announced a new feature that will come to the Xbox Guide on Xbox One. When you open your Friends List in the Guide and select one of your friends who are currently playing, you can soon start the same game, if you already have it installed on the console, or go to the Microsoft Store to install it. (or buy it).
According to Major Nelson, this new feature is currently being released to all Xbox One users; so you can check the Xbox Guide the next time you turn on the console to see if you already have it. This seems to be a time-saving feature, especially when you want to join a friend in a multiplayer game. Below, hit play to see how it works:
Look for it soon when you are in the Guide and you click on a friends profile.
