Xbox today rolling out a new feature to its Xbox app for iOS and Android called “activity feed” which will let you create, share, and view stories with your friends in the Xbox app, and add priority tags for your console gaming experiences with Quality of Service (QoS) tagging.

This means you can share your favorite gaming moments with your friends and the Xbox community, including game clips, screenshots, and achievements. You can also leave a message or a quick reaction in response to your friends’ stories.

The Xbox app’s stories channel can be found right on the home screen. To make a story, go to the stories channel and click the Add button on your gamertag, then select the game clip, screenshot, or achievement you want to publish from the gallery.

Once you’ve made your selections, you’ll be sent to a story preview page where you may add a caption to your post and then click the post button in the bottom right. The stories channel shows content from the last 72 hours, and whatever you share is also added to your profile’s activity feed.

Quality of Service (QoS) tagging is a new Xbox service that assigns priority to latency-sensitive outbound networking traffic like party chat, console streaming, and multiplayer games (in supported games). This protects your gaming experience from connection troubles on compatible networks during times of congestion.

A new button for QoS Tagging Settings may be found in the Settings app under General, Network settings, Advanced settings. There are two options for QoS Tagging Settings: DSCP Tagging Enabled and WMM Tagging Enabled.
