14

Microsoft does not rest in its mission to offer the best experience to its players. That is why its Xbox team has been working on a new update for Xbox One. In it, players will find a couple of changes to the messages, to the list of friends and more.

As reported in Major Nelson’s blog, this new update for Xbox One will make adjustments to the friend lists so you not only know what they are playing but also know from where. In other words, it will have an icon that will tell you if your friend is playing from an Xbox One, Windows 10 or a mobile device.

As we already mentioned, this update will also bring changes to the messages and that Microsoft says it will make them “smarter”. This will be achieved by filtering the messages that come from strangers and so they do not bother you while browsing your conversations with your friends. Keep in mind that this type of messages will now appear in a tab similar to the Message Request that is on social networks like Facebook.

The bad news is that this change will bring some consequences and it is that the group messages will be lost. Fortunately, you can visit the official Xbox site, log in there and look for them to be archived on your computer. In this way, your epic conversations will not be lost. We reiterate that this will only affect group conversations and your private messages while individual users are safe.

Finally, the Xbox team made adjustments to make it easier to find your favorite content in the My Games and Applications section. This is because the articles will not be considered when looking for games. For example, if you want to find The Witcher: Wild Hunt, it will appear if you are looking for Witcher’s W instead of The T’s.

Finally, Microsoft recalled that all these adjustments were possible thanks to the feedback of fans who are part of the Xbox Insider program. So, the company took the opportunity to thank their participation to make Xbox One a better console.
