Xbox One will now give you a shortcut to install games your friends are playing

Today, Microsoft's Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) took to Twitter to announce a new feature that's rolling out to Xbox One consoles. The company is making it easier to get ahold of games that your friends are playing. There will be a shortcut to view more information about the game, and then there will be a link to play it, install it, or buy it.

Naturally, if it's already installed, the option will be to play it, if you own it and it's not installed, the option will be to install it, and if you don't own it, the option will be to buy it. Presumably, you'll also get an option to install it if you're a Game Pass subscriber and the title is available via the subscription service.

According to Hryb, the feature is rolling out now. Microsoft already rolled out this month's feature update, so you shouldn't need to install an update to get this working.
