    "I downloaded the Xbox app off of the google play store on my phone and it made it so much easier to manage my account versus from my Xbox console/TV. I was able to change my payment type, see when the next billing is, and I was even able to change my subscription. Within the app, I also had access to all of my Xbox friends and was able to chat with them if I wanted to. Among all of those features, I was also able to see all of my accomplishments."
