Xbox One Live Integration

Xbox One Owner Here:

Has anyone else noticed the step backwards the One has taken with its integration of friend lists and party chats? I think the current system is cumbersome and not as easy to use as the 360.

I realize that the system & software will mature, but I am a little disappointed that with all the steps they took forward on the 360, that they took a step backwards on the One. How in the hell do you go backwards on functionality?

BTW: I'm a happy One owner and I recommend the console. This is my one gripe.
