Microsoft has been working on several cool new features for the Xbox One that it’s going to release over the next few weeks. It has rolled out the latest Xbox One update for Xbox Insiders in the Alpha ring. This update brings some of the features that it has been working on. This includes a new “Do not disturb” feature for the console.
With this update, Insiders will be able to use the “Next Achievements” feature in the Guide to view and sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements. This lets them easily see which Achievements they are closest to and quickly launch the game to get them.
The update will also bring Mini Game Hubs soon in the Guide itself. This feature will let users access content for the games they’ve played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the action. Mini Game Hubs let them easily see friends who are currently playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.
Players who want to avoid all distractions and just focus on the game will like the new “Do not disturb” feature. When selected, this online status will suppress notifications and let the players’ friends know that they are not available for another game or activity at that point in time.
These features will gradually make their way through the Xbox One Update Preview rings before they’re released for all users. It’s going to be a while before that happens.
