Xbox One is getting an update that will bring various new features to the console, including streaming games on a Windows 10 PC in 1080p and 60 frame-rates per second.
The August update will start rolling out today and includes the ability to get full 1080p HD Xbox One to Windows 10streaming at a buttery smooth 60fps. Enabling it is also pretty straightforward – simply select “Very High” under the video encoding level settings of Game Streaming and you should be good to go.
Microsoft has just announced the details of this month’s update for Xbox One consoles.
Notifications – Starting today, you can enable or disable notifications for when you are invited to a party or a multiplayer game via Settings > General > Party & Games Invitations.
Apart from this addition, you can now also compare achievements with friends and see what specific ones they acquired recently – a feature that seems like a no-brainer, but better late than never. A second tile will also reveal when you last played it, and Gamerscore and Achievement completion percentages for the highlighted game.
The update will also allow you to compare Achievements with your friends. The “My Games” section has been updated with a new grid view that sorts the games alphabetically.
As long as you have an active Xbox Live Gold membership you can buy the games for free, adding them to your account whether you download them or not.
Right Click – You can now right-click on one of your friends and select Send Messageor Invite to Party to more quickly connect with your friends. The list of games that are automatically discovered has been updated as well. You still need very gamer-focused values, but there’s lots of things you can do with our technology. Let us know in the comments, and as always – stay tuned to Gamer Headlines. If the new setting isn’t there, make sure you’ve upgraded to v8.8.15003.00000 or later.
With this in mind, what are you hoping to see in September as Microsoft prepare for the busy Fall period?
