The Xbox One party feature will be improved in one of the coming software updates. A short clip now offers some details about how it will look like.
As you can see in the clip shared by Xbox Director of Program Management Mike Ybarra, the improved party feature will allow you to view who is in a party before joining.
While we don´t know when the required update will be pushed out, you can expect it anytime soon. Microsoft has been pretty active with updates, releasing them on a monthly basis.

This week saw already a small system update fixing mostly behind the scene bugs. The last big update for Xbox One has been The New Xbox One Experience with backward compatibility for some Xbox 360 games and next-gen features like screenshots, Game DVR and broadcasting.
Microsoft is investing heavily in online gaming, that´s why many of the software updates coming out are related to the online experience. Xbox creator James Allard recently called Online “the ultimate and final format” for gaming, and Microsoft is thinking the same.
