What's new on Xbox One for November

More updates and improvements ahead of the holidays.

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.
