First New Xbox One Update of the Year Adds Helpful Features

First New Xbox One Update of the Year Adds Helpful Features”

The update is now being rolled out for those who are part of the Xbox Insider beta, after some testing the update will then roll out to everyone else.

Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Ring will be the first ones to check out the upcoming features in the latest Xbox One system update. By becoming an Xbox Insider you get to experience work-in-progress content and features before anyone else, while it offers all Xbox owners a sneak peek at what's coming down the line (or not if something proves unpopular).

Xbox One Alpha Insiders are now testing a new firmware that brings a couple of nifty features. Some new features will be available right away, with others rolling out over the next several weeks. You'll get a quick look at the Achievements you are close to getting across all of your games and can even instantly launch them. Sort filters allow you to prioritize next Achievements by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore.

Viswanathan Anand wins World Rapid Chess Championship
Anand had not won the World Rapid Championship since 2003 and had a couple of disastrous World Championships before this year. The Indian Grandmaster said that the victory against World No.1 Magnus Carlsen was instrumental in winning the championship.

The second change is to Xbox Live's Game Hubs, to the Guide menu, with "Small Game Hubs" offering snappy features. "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". The community feed has been tweaked to make reading comments much easier, and the "Next Achievements" feature is now accessible in the Guide so you can "view and sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements". The Narrator is also now able to read large amounts of text.

It'll also soon be possible to set up an automatic shut down time range, which is pretty great if you tend to leave your console running when you leave the home and walk around for a whole day with fire risk fears hanging over your head.
