If you want the ability to message friends from the My Xbox Live app, you’ll need a Gold Membership.
If you don’t have a Gold Membership yet, download the Xbox 360 Dashboard update. Then you’ll find an offer to get the membership for only $1.00 for one month.
Note: After the 30 days is up, it will charge you the regular monthly price. Make sure you’re aware of that and cancel it before the 30 days is up – if you don’t want to continue the membership.
Once you have an Xbox Live Gold Membership you can use the messaging feature.
Tap the Settings icon to manage your privacy settings for the app. Voice and Text is blocked by default. Make sure to enable it to message with your friends.
My Xbox Live app is free and works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Navigating the app is intuitive and smooth. It gives you the familiar Xbox 360 experience and provides several different options.
If you want to keep up on your games and friends’ games while on the go, My Xbox Live is well worth the download.
