Spread the love

Version 1.69 of Xfire was released yesterday. Xfire is a chat program for gamers and allows you to chat in text and voice both in and out of games, see what game your friends are currently playing and download game patches and demos via a private P2P network . In this release, among other things, the speed with which screenshots can be made within games has been greatly improved and the makers can now send messages if updates are available, for example. The full changelog shows the following changes:
