Microsoft has been assuring the expansion of new Xbox One store highlights for quite a while, with lists of things to get and digital gifting among the most asked. Prior this month in a meeting the Xbox Platform CVP, Mike Ybarra, examined the present condition of both these highlights – taking note of the fast approaching entry of one of these features.
It now creates the impression that the beginning times of Xbox One advanced game gifting are as of now live in the Microsoft Store, regardless of an official declaration yet to originate from Microsoft. For those in the Xbox Insider Program running 1710 preview works in front of the up and coming fall OS refresh, the element is currently live and apparently completely practical.
When exploring to the Microsoft Store (the Xbox Store was as of late rebranded under this name), the feature to gift items is found nearby the alternative for conventional individual buys. Following the means, you’ll be given the alternative to send a game by email address or Xbox Live Gamertag and connect a customized name/message. The rest of the checkout procedure is apparently indistinguishable to the regular way of purchasing, enabling you to pick and install the game once the transaction is complete.
On the beneficiary’s end, the notification of a gifted game will show up through email. The email will have a redeemable 25-digit prepaid code, that can be reclaimed through Xbox Live to any Microsoft account.
