Microsoft is right on schedule with the Xbox One Spring Update and if you’re in the Xbox Insider Alpha Ring you can download and check it out right now. Among its features, you can find remote play with PC as well as support for 1440p video output on Xbox One S and X.
The Remote Play for PC feature has been already detailed by us earlier today, saying that it works with Mixer, which is Xbox’s streaming service and lets a PC user take control of the Xbox One who is watching through Mixer.com on PC. Using this, Streamers will be able to let other players take control of their games via a controller.
Apart from Remote Control, the Xbox One Spring Update will let your Xbox One X and Xbox One S support output at 1440p resolution for games and media; 1440p resolution, which is sometimes referred to as “2560×1440” and “QHD”. This feature brings a million and a half more pixels than 1080p, this resolution fills the gap between Full HD and 4K displays.
Furthermore, The Microsoft Edge browser on Xbox One has been updated to a new look, making it easier to navigate with a controller. You can also now download and upload pictures, music and videos from Microsoft Edge on the console – your downloaded content can then be browsed with the File Explorer app.
Other new features in the Xbox One Spring Update include more immersive audio for your console, the ability to filter invitation requests for Club owners and smarter club feeds to personalize the content you see on the club posts page. Furthermore, Tournaments are now available directly in Game Hubs, so you don’t have to be a member of a club to start or join a tournament.
