Xbox One update: Microsoft announce changes with Xbox App iOS and Android upgrade –

The new Xbox One update will include a long list of tweaks, including Custom Gamerpics, Console Co-streaming and Arena improvements.

Microsoft say they’ve been focusing on fan feedback when it comes to the console improvements, which look set to be released later this month.

Xbox One fans will soon be able to upload custom Gamerpics to their Xbox profile, as well as host Mixer co-streaming, with up to three able to stream together in a single broadcast. 

Other changes include being able to Sign-in to your Xbox One with just one press of the Xbox button on your controller. 

The tech giant are also planning a big Xbox App upgrade on Android and iOS, which will include a new option to browse Xbox Game Pass titles.

Here’s a breakdown of the changes coming later this month to the Xbox App:

“Looking-for-Group requests are getting more exposure in this release with the ability to share them to the Activity Feed and Messages. 

“Create an LFG from a game hub, and once it’s submitted you can select it and tap “Share this post”. You can share it to the Activity Feed for broad distribution or to a specific group of friends though Messages.

“With this update, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can now browse the titles in their subscription through the Xbox app. 

“If you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, go to the drawer and select “Store”, then swipe over to the “Xbox Game Pass” pivot and you can see the list of featured Game Pass titles or use the provided filters to find a game you are interested in.

“When you find titles you’re interested in, you can also install these games to your console directly from the app.

“For our customers who set their phones to a different region or locale than their Xbox account, you can now easily set the app and store experience to match your Xbox and purchase content from the store in your console’s region. To access this feature, open the drawer and select “Settings”. 

“In the Settings section, choose the “Language” tab at the top. From there you can make your desired selections.

“The Xbox app on Android is getting a bonus feature this month with Chat Bubbles. This overlay experience lets you use your mobile games and apps while keeping your Xbox conversations within reach. When you get a new message, a chat bubble will open automatically for that conversation – this works for messages as well as club chat. 

“You can also open this view by navigating to the conversation menu options. Chat bubbles are on by default, but if you would like to turn it off, you can choose “Settings” from the drawer, select the “Notifications” tab at the top, and disable the setting for “Chat Bubbles”.”
