A few weeks ago there was an update to Xbox Live and xbox.com that allowed you to add friends online via the xbox.com website. This was an awesome addition since many times when I am talking to people online they will tell me their gamertag and but by the time I log into my Xbox 360 – the information has long left my little brain. Now if I am chatting with someone I can jump right into my Xbox profile and add them.
What is even better now is the upgrade that took place earlier this week that allows you to send messages to people on your friends list through your browser via the xbox.com site. This is the perfect way to line up some gaming prior to firing up your xbox. Not to mention I can type messages much fast with my keyboard than i can with a game controller.
