What's new on Xbox One for March

Check out the latest and greatest in the Xbox One March update!

Opening the guide

Get to your favorite stuff from anywhere with one push of a button. The Xbox button  now takes you directly to the guide, giving you quicker access to your games and apps. To go home, just press the Xbox button  and then select Home.

Beam

Introducing Beam broadcasting, an easy and quick way to broadcast your gameplay so viewers anywhere can watch you play in real time. While you're playing a game, just launch the guide and scroll down to Beam broadcasting to show off your skills.

Copilot

Now you can link two controllers and use them as one, with Copilot.

In Settings, go to Kinect and devices > Devices and accessories. Then select Device info > Turn on Copilot, and choose the copilot's controller. Both controllers now control the game together.

Achievement tracker

The new achievement tracker lets you keep an eye on your favorite achievements and play at the same time. Move it anywhere on the screen, it's your call. You also control the number of achievements shown and the transparency level – display it prominently or fade it in to the background.

Press the Xbox button  and go to Achievements to turn the tracker on.

Cortana

Now you can set reminders on your Xbox One so you don't miss any gaming opportunities. Reminders show up wherever you use Cortana – PC, phone, or Xbox.

Cortana also supports more party controls. Say "Hey Cortana, invite party to game" to add partygoers without having to pause your game.

Game DVR

We've made it even easier to make game clips: just press the Xbox button  . From there, your controller's Y button  grabs a screenshot, X  saves the last 30 seconds, and the View button  shows the Game DVR options you know and love, from starting a recording to saving the last 5 minutes of play.

Family timer

The new family timer lets you put limits on a child's screen time. To turn it on, sign in at account.microsoft.com and click See activity for any child account. Then turn Xbox Screen time to On, and set the allowed time per day.
