Embark on the new year with brand new Xbox One features!

-

System updates are a way of life and it’s always great to see new, exciting features hitting our consoles. Today is news of the latest batch of features that will be hitting Xbox One, with those who are Xbox Insiders getting access very shortly.

As detailed over on MajorNelson’s blog, the latest Xbox One System Update is focused on letting us get easier access to the game info we care about. That means a new Achievements features that shows the closest Gamerscore unlock, new Mini Game Hubs for instant information, a much needed ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature, theme scheduling, new power options and the opportunity to get more involved in the comments from the community.

Details as follows:

  • Starting today at 6 p.m. PST, Xbox Insiders enrolled in the Alpha ring will receive the latest Xbox One system update (1802.180105-1503). With this update, you’ll be able to use the “Next Achievements” feature in the Guide, which enables you to view and sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements. Easily see which Achievements you are closest to, and quickly launch the game to obtain them. Sort filters allow you to prioritize next Achievements by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore.
  • Mini Game Hubs will soon be available right in the Guide. With this feature, you’ll be able to access great content for the games you’ve played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the action. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are currently playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.
  • Sometimes all you want to do is avoid all distractions and focus entirely on your game. We’ll be including a “Do not disturb” online status, which will suppress notifications and let your friends know that you’re not available for another game or activity right now.
  • We’re tweaking the community feed to make it easier to view comments. You’ll soon be able to see a peek of the most recent comment on community posts while viewing the activity in full screen. Comments are also being rearranged to place those that are most recent at the top. You’ll also be able to see who has liked your comments.
  • To address user feedback, we’re adding additional inactivity shutdown options to the Power mode & startup menu. In addition to shutting down the console after one or six hours of inactivity, you will be able to select options for two, three, four and five hours.
  • Put your themes on a schedule! You’ll soon be able to switch between light and dark themes based on time of day.

Are these the type of features that will see you getting even more out of your Xbox One experience? Are there any glaring omissions that need a fix right away? Let us know what you think about this latest feature set by posting down below in the comments.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
