Microsoft’s Windows 10 has several features that are centered around gaming, such as features that help users take screenshots, stream, and so on. However in the latest update to Windows, it seems that Microsoft is finally doing away with an annoying feature of Windows, which is its uncanny ability to interrupt gaming sessions at crucial moments.


In a blog post (via PCGamesN), Microsoft highlighted how there will now be fewer gaming interruptions with regards to updates. According to Microsoft, this means that gamers will no longer be interrupted while playing games to deal with driver installs and will also block update notifications that ask users to restart their computers.

“Based on feedback from gamers, we’ve simplified the way Game Mode works. Now auto-enabled for all games with a master On/Off toggle in Windows Settings, Game Mode suppresses Windows Update driver installs and blocks Windows Update interruptions such as restart notifications while you’re gaming. You may also see improved game performance with less FPS variability depending on the specific game and system.”

We’re not sure what took Microsoft so long to implement such a feature, but we suppose better late than never, right? The update will also introduce some changes made to the Game Bar which will feature a new and cleaner look along with new audio controls.
