Microsoft Testing a New Xbox App With Mobile Party Chat

Mixer, Microsoft's interactive live streaming platform for gamers is now rolling out new iOS and Android apps that have been rebuilt from scratch.

In addition to that, the mobile phone app will also be useful as a standalone audio/text chat option if you are using external speakers for the game's audio. You can pick up the app via iPhone and Android right now, though this isn't considered an "official" announcement just yet as Microsoft hasn't made any kind of statement about it. According to the release notes, first spotted over on Reddit (via Engadget), the latest update to the beta app adds support for beta testing of party chat. That's why Microsoft is bringing a new feature, now in beta, to your smartphone.
