Xbox One August Update Brings 1080p/60fps Streaming on Windows 10 and More
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.
This update targets the integration of Xbox Live features into Microsoft’s latest PC operating system Windows 10. Microsoft has been attempting to integrate all its gadgets under a single system through which information can be shared across the platforms.
In addition to the HD streaming at 60 fps, the update – which goes live today – will also bring the following features:
“Right Click – You can now right-click on one of your friends and select Send Message or Invite to Party to more quickly connect with your friends.
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.
Recently Played – Now you will see an animated display alternately showing you how many friends have played each game along with the four most recent players. The display will then switch to show a second tile with your last played date, Gamerscore and Achievements percentage complete. If you click on the game, it will take you to the Game Hub, where you can see a list of all of your friends who have played the game sorted by most recently played along with their online status.
Compare Achievements with a Friend – You can now compare your achievement status with one of your friends who has played the game. From a Game Hub page, select Achievements > Compare at the top right above the list of all of the achievements.
My Games – We updated My Games to support a grid view with a jump list, where your games are now displayed in a grid sorted alphabetically. If you click on a letter, you can collapse the list and then select a specific letter of the alphabet to more quickly find a game. The list of games that are automatically discovered has been updated as well.
Add Games – The ability to manually add games to your collection that have a link in the Start Menu by selecting My Games > Add a game from your PC has been updated with a help link to help you add games to your collection.”
In addition to this, Microsoft is also updating the Xbox application on Windows 10 to fix issues related to sign-in problems. The app should update automatically, but if it doesn’t, you can always had to the Windows Store and carry out the update manually.
