Is Gold required to play multiplayer through the Xbox App on PC?

No, possibly for parties but they are making gold less and less important so I expect you won't need gold in PC at all
Thanks man! The only real interaction I have with Xbox features is multiplayer through games in the app so it shouldn’t make that big of a difference to me.
PC game pass it's all you need if you are just playing on PC 😎👍
No you don’t need gold for Xbox app Parties, if you want to play an online game from Xbox that isn’t free you must pay for gold.
No but if you plan to continually subscribe for the long term it's worth the gold to ultimate conversion. Essentially netting you ultimate for the same cost as PC gamepass. So maintains console flexibility, retains games with gold, and access to xcloud for the same cost with negative of a longer term commitment
If you have Game Pass PC all the titles include online play, so you can play online sea of thieves or Halo.
However if you have Xbox game pass you also need Gold to play online, its stupid
