Save me

Settings on your home console – including TV and OneGuide – are now saved automatically to the cloud when you sign in. When you set up a new Xbox, we’ll ask if you want to apply them.

Speed up setup

Now you can use the Xbox app on iOS or Android to finish setup on a new Xbox while it downloads the day one update. Look for the option when the update starts.

Clubbin’

On top of games and friends, now you can add club blocks to Home. Add them from both the guide and the club itself.

Give the gift of games

Want to play Santa? Give a gift from the Microsoft Store, including most digital games, durable DLC, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass. Look for the “Buy as gift” button and send stuff to friends and family.

Pretty please?

Now kids can ask their parents to buy games and apps for them with the “Ask a parent” online safety setting. Parents can manage their children's privacy & online safety settings in Settings > Account > Family (or visit account.microsoft.com/family).

Time’s up

Screen time limits allow a child to ask for more time when they run out, but the parent had to complete the request on the console. Now, kids can request more time in email and you can approve (or deny) from there. To set up screen time for your family, visit account.microsoft.com/family.

Out of sight

We heard you! Now you can hide your games with no unlocked achievements from the personal and public view of your profile.

Create your own tournaments

If you’re the owner or admin of a club, create Arena tournaments in a snap. Just go to your club, choose the Tournaments tab, select Create tournament, choose Killer Instinct, then customize your tournament—name, start time, and other details. When you’re done, your tournament will appear in the Tournaments tab of your club.

If you don’t have a club, create one—it only takes a few minutes. To get started, press the Xbox button  to open the guide, then select Home. Move over to the Community tab, select Clubs on Xbox, then choose Create a club.

Add a custom image to your profile

Personalize your profile with a custom image. Plug in a USB device with your chosen image, or download it from OneDrive (available in the Store under Apps). Then go to your profile and select Customize profile > Change gamerpic. (You’ll need to select Switch to gamerpic first if you’re replacing your avatar with a custom image.)

Select Upload a custom image and follow the steps to add your own image.

Custom images are only available for adult Microsoft accounts.

Sign in with your personal controller

Have one controller you use most? Link that controller to your profile so you’ll be signed in automatically when it turns on. To link your personal controller, press the Xbox button  and go to Settings > Sign in, security & passkey.

Entertainment hub on Home

The OneGuide hub is now called Entertainment. This change reflects the many ways on Xbox to get the latest movies and TV shows. You can still connect your digital cable box to browse the Xbox program guide, which remains OneGuide. But now you get there through the Entertainment hub.

More activity feed options

Not sure you want a particular post showing up in your activity feed? Hide it. Select the post, then select Options > Hide. Or maybe you only want to see certain types of posts. Go to the top of your feed and select the filter button, then choose your preferences.

If there’s a post you really want other people to see, pin it to the top of the activity feed in your profile or a club. Select the post, then select Options > Pin to club. You’ll see your post pinned to the top until someone unpins or replaces it.

Keep using your favorite Looking for Group posts

Press the Xbox button  and go to Parties > View history to see Looking for Group posts you’ve created or expressed interest in, then choose a post to use it again.

Filter your games

In your games and apps, choose whether to see all games, games made for Xbox One, or just your Xbox 360 games that work on Xbox One. This works on both the games you’ve installed and anything in your list of games that are ready to install.

New settings for Narrator and Magnifier

Choose a voice pitch and personality for Narrator readouts while you’re using Xbox One. When you’re viewing screens with Magnifier, the zoomed-in part of your screen can now follow your controller navigation so you don’t need to keep turning Magnifier on and off. Review your new options in Settings > Ease of Access.

Appear offline right from guide

Make it look like you’re not signed in to Xbox Live: Open the guide, go to the top, select yourself, and choose Appear offline. Select it again to show up as being online. From the same spot, hop to your profile, memberships, and account management.

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.

Mixer
Introducing Mixer 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 Mixer 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, the X button 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.

Screen time limits
Screen time limits let you limit the hours and times of day your child can play. To turn it on, sign in at account.microsoft.com/family and click Screen time for any child account. Then turn Xbox Screen time to On, and set your child's limits for each day. Once your console has the update, it'll start enforcing those limits.
