Now available to preview members, the upcoming Xbox One update will bring in the capacity for console owners to make a purchase even up to playing Xbox 360 games. While Microsoft brought in the backwards compatibility in 2015, we were still stuck with the sad reality that Xbox 360 titles weren’t listed in the store for quick accessibility .

As we have gathered, Microsoft is adding some features so as to improve the party chat experience outside of Twitch. The output emanating from a party chat for now has its restrictions tied to a headset should you play with one connected, but then Microsoft is making changes to the settings options, so this time it gives Xbox One members the ability to output party chat audio to speaker and even headsets all at the same time. Microsoft is making expansion to the number of people who could be accommodated in participation of a party chat to 16, a move from the 12-person parties feature we were previously accustomed to. According to the arrangement, this will be compatible across the Xbox app as well as on Windows 10 and then extensively to the Xbox One console.


One equally very highly requested feature is the user exercising increased control over DVR recording length. At the moment, we see that Xbox One owners are limited to barley half a minute clips , and we have consequently faced noticeable discomfort to add to this figure. Microsoft will make premise for Xbox One owners to make adjustment to the recording length to 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minutes or 5 minutes.

Microsoft is as well designing building achievements into the Xbox One guide, the essence if that there would no longer be the need for you to launch snap a separate app. Every of theses aforementioned developments will become available to Xbox One preview members, as Microsoft is planning to roll out generally to all consoles within the weeks to come.
