doesnt work on shadow, i forgot why (ive read it somewhere) but it somehow interfere with shadow’s thing and that’s why it doesnt work (i think it’s about the streaming service not the actual pc)

Thanks for the help! Let’s hope the shadow developers will find a way round it in the future!

I assume you need the Xbox app installed.  If you install the Xbox app on the PC you can chat and use similar features as the game bar.  Try that.

Does anyone from Shadow know the answer to this? Can’t join my friends Xbox Party chat because it requires the Game Bar :( 

I believe the Game bar is working, however you cannot see it, because the stream does not include the windows overlay.

 

However, I have successfully joined my friends Xbox party through the Xbox Console Companion app and the Xbox (beta) app. I had a better experience with the Xbox Console Companion app. Don’t forget to enable your microphone in shadow :)

I will need to test this out on my next Sea of Thieves adventure :) 

Also just an FYI that the companion app is going to be discontinued

Yes I know, but not to soon I hope. Because I had a far better experience with the parties and I still use it to stream my Xbox :)
