Note If you’re in the middle of a system update and need to find your operating system version on your console, pull both the left and right triggers and both the left and right bumpers on your controller at the same time. The operating system version is listed as Build and is the second line down.

Smarter wish list
From now on, you’ll receive a notification any time something on your wish list at the Microsoft Store gets a price discount. Never miss a deal again.
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.

Take a break
The new break reminder in Settings/Preferences lets you set a timer that reminds you to take a break after a certain amount of time on the console. The timer restarts if you sign out or turn off the console. You choose the interval – 30 minutes to two hours.
OS version - 10.0.18362.5047 (19h1_release_xbox_dev_1907.190628-1920)

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.
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."
OS version - 10.0.18362.2018 (19h1_release_xbox_dev_1904.190410-1845)
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).
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.
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.
