New Xbox Live updates inspired by fan demand are going to start rolling out today, according to Larry Hryb’s official blog.

The features that came with the updates have been available to Xbox Insiders for a month, and will only now be given out to the rest of the playerbase.

The past few months have been busy for Xbox Live, with Microsoft constantly adding new features. Whether it was Beam broadcasting, Game Mode on Windows 10, or a preview of Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live is changing, and now the change will get even faster as Microsoft rolls out the new Xbox Live updates.

To start with, Microsoft is planning to add World of Tanks tournaments on the Xbox One, allowing players of the free-to-play tank battle game to compete against one another in Esports competitions.

Other new Xbox Live updates include things like the ability to select the audio input and output sources for Party chat on the Xbox app for Windows 10, Kinect auto-zoom for Beam and Twitch broadcasts, and Captive Portal support for wireless internet on your Xbox One.

In addition to all of that, players can now join a broadcast, in order to quickly find a stream that someone is having at that moment.

In your Activity Feed, you can now hide individual posts, pin posts to the top of your feed, and filter posts by the friends and clubs that make them, or the games they come from.

In other areas, like My Games And Apps, the new Xbox Live updates will give you the ability to filter your games by console.

If you want to filter out the ones that are from the Xbox 360, or the ones from Xbox One, you can do it with a simple trip to the drop-down menu.

All of these updates will be coming soon, so be on the lookout for them!
