Google Assistant joins the fun

The Xbox Action for Google Assistant is available to Xbox One owners in all countries where Google Assistant is supported. English language is available today, with additional language support coming soon.

With this launch, you can now interact with your Xbox One using Google Assistant and Home enabled devices, as well as the Google Assistant apps on iOS and Android. For more info, check out the setup instructions and a list of commands you can use with Google Assistant.

Gamertag improvements on console

We’ve updated gamertags to give people more choice in how they represent themselves on Xbox. Now you can choose just about any name you want. We’ve also added 13 different alphabets for gamers, which support over 200 languages worldwide. For more on how the new system works, see the Gamertag update FAQ.

Current Xbox players can keep their existing gamertags without any further action required and no change in experience. There will be no difference in how your gamertag is presented unless you want to create a new account or change your existing gamertag.

Message safety

You decide what’s OK and what isn’t in the text-based messages you receive across Xbox Live. Now you can filter messages, with four levels to choose from – Friendly, Medium, Mature, and Unfiltered.

To set a filter, go to Settings > General > Online safety & family > Privacy & online safety and select Message safety. Whenever you receive a message that’s beyond your safety setting, it’ll be replaced with a [Potentially offensive message hidden] placeholder. Adult accounts can choose whether or not to see content that’s been filtered.

Better Mixer viewing

We’re now giving you the ability the orient the Mixer chat to the left side of your screen, to the right side, or to hide it altogether.

Simplified settings

With this update, Settings is getting a new look. The menu has been condensed and reorganized, with commonly used settings at the top, improving navigation and discoverability.

Voice-to-text dictation

Dictation is expanding with support for more languages, including English (U.S. and Canada), English (India), English (UK), Spanish (Mexico), Spanish (Spain), French (Canada), French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese, with more to come in future updates.

With a headset or Kinect, press the View button whenever the keyboard is on the screen to start converting speech to text. To change preferences from your regional default, head to Settings > System > Language & location to select your keyboard & dictation language.

Mixer and Xbox One are further integrating with a full Mixer viewing experience right in the dashboard, with a focus on speed and simplicity. No more need to open a separate app for your streaming fix.

Flexible capture settings

You now have more control over what gets captured and recorded in games. In Settings > Preferences > Capture & share, choose between “Captures by me,” “Captures by me or games,” and “Don’t capture.”

Recommend games on Xbox Game Pass

If there’s a game on Xbox Game Pass you think your friends need to be playing, recommend it! When you open Xbox Game Pass, choose a game and select Share. Then send your message with any additional comments you want to add.

Hey Cortana, it’s been real

With the October update, Cortana will no longer be available on Xbox, except as the digital assistant on the Harmon Kardon Invoke intelligent speaker.

However, voice interaction will still be possible for those with a Kinect sensor, using the Xbox voice commands. For a list of original voice commands, see Xbox voice commands with Kinect.

Any device with Amazon Alexa can also be set up to use voice commands with your Xbox. To see how, visit Set up Alexa for Xbox One.

Play later

With so many great games to choose from in the Xbox Game Pass catalog, it can be hard to keep track of every game you may want to play. Play later lets you make a list of games for you to come back to on your time. Manage your collection from your Xbox console or the Game Pass mobile app and download your games when you’re ready.

Friends list shows where your friends are playing

We’ve added icons in your friends list for other platforms your friends are currently playing on. These icons will only appear for the platforms you’re not currently viewing the friends list on. For example, if you’re signed in to Xbox One, you’ll see icons for friends signed in to their PC or mobile device, and your friends will see an icon in their friends list that you’re on Xbox One.

Message requests

Prioritize messages from your friends and anyone you want to communicate with while separating out messages from people you don’t know into a message requests tab.

As part of this update, all previous group messages will be removed (your one-on-one messages won’t be affected). If you want to back up any previous group messages, copy and paste them in Xbox.com for a limited time.

Better sorting in My games & apps

We’ve made it simpler to find the content you’re looking for. In My games & apps, titles will no longer contain articles such as "a," "an," or "the" when you use the Sort A-Z or Group by letter views. For example, "The Witcher" will now be found under "W" instead of "T."

Console restart

We heard you! There’s now an option to fully restart the console on the power center screen (press and hold the Xbox button on your controller).

Streamlined quests

Now you can get to Game Pass quests directly from the Game Pass hub on Home as well as from your profile. Just select Game Pass, then scroll down and select Quests – Show All.

Console keyboard improvements

We’ve updated the virtual keyboard on the console so that it takes up less space on the screen and can position itself smartly around text fields.

Easier uninstall

Want to install something new but faced with a full hard drive? Now, instead of first having to go choose what to remove, we suggest items for removal that will free up enough space on your hard drive. And here’s the kicker – when that’s done we automatically start installing your new game or app!

Xbox One Media Remote shortcut

The Xbox One Media Remote has been updated to let you reprogram the OneGuide button to launch a media app instead of OneGuide. This is a great shortcut to jump into your favorite media app and start watching.
