Xbox One Overdog App Seeks To Help The Matchmaking Process

Launched today on Xbox One, Overdog seeks to match players with similar interests and connect them to play online.

It works a bit like a dedicated console social network, letting Xbox One players highlight a bunch of their interests, gaming and non-gaming alike, to create matches with other players. Overdog also wants to connect players with celebrity gamers.

You can check out a video below detailing how the service works. You can also find out more about it on its website, here. Finally, we interviewed former Chicago Bears linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer a few years ago about the service when it was still in its infancy. The app has changed focus quite a bit since then, but Hillenmeyer was one of the original forces behind its inception. You can read that interview here.

Our Take
Xbox One, to a small degree, has some of these functions already built into the operating system and Xbox Live, so I'm curious to see if the service will find an audience. The idea of finding someone to play online with who shares your obscure interest in a certain type of music or movies is certainly a compelling one, though. It seems like a good idea.
