Why does Xbox on Windows 10 Party Chat REQUIRE Windows Firewall ON and Windows Defender OFF?

So this is a common issue.

Error code 0x807d0106 occurs if:

1) Windows Firewall is DISABLED.

*AND*

2) Windows Defender is ENABLED.

Windows Firewall is a bit deplorable and I hate having it run for any reason.

Windows Defender, while not functionally as useful as when it first came out is still relevant-ish.

Can someone from Microsoft please describe how to allow Xbox Party Chat to work without conditions 1 and 2 needing to be met?

MrPixelTech,

Thank you for all of the information.  We'd love to look into this as we're always looking to make party chat the best it can be.  If you'd like, we can track this internally if you could submit feedback through the beta app.

I would love to.  I'm assuming, then, that there's a feedback button I can click within the Xbox app on Windows 10?  If so, I'm not seeing it.

Yes, MrPixelTech.  Using the beta app, click the feedback button near the bottom of the menu bar on the left.  This button is only found in the beta app, which can be downloaded through the Windows Store.
