Xbox One Gains Game Gifting

Game gifting is rolling out on the Xbox One, with it initially becoming available for some members of the Xbox Insider program. With this feature, users can gift any title from the Microsoft Store to another player via Xbox Live. Microsoft didn't officially announce the feature's availability.

Mike Ybarra, Xbox Platform CVP, revealed in September that game gifting would be coming soon. Ybarra also said wishlists are on the way.

This capability is found in the 1710 preview build that's available to Insiders. Digital item gifting has been a highly requested Microsoft Store feature.
