Looking for Groups (LFG)
LFG allows players to search for people you want to game with and works for any Xbox One title. If you want to do daily missions on a certain game, all you have to do is set up an LFG post with your requirements so you can find the right gamers, set up your rules, game and game mode etc.
Here’s a brief explanation of how LFG works, you can browse open LFG posts, find the one you want to join and request to join it, session owners can choose which gamers they want to join and when the session is full they can quickly invite the players to a party and game.
