Xbox One Adds New Achievement, Do Not Disturb Features In Preview Update

Xbox-One-Do-Not-Disturb

Alongside the updates listed above, which will work their way naturally through the Xbox One Preview Update rings, a subset of users may also see additional experimental features. Now, those who test new features and games from Xbox One will be able sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements. This list will include achievements across all of your games and will allow you to launch the games from there so that you can earn them. There are sort filters that allow you to prioritize next Achievements by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore.

Those people for whom hiding offline doesn't feel right (but also wish to be able to play a game without messages or party invites) will like the next feature.

Already rolling out to Xbox Insiders in the Alpha ring, Microsoft has revealed some of the features that will be coming with the next Xbox One system update, including new achievement features, Mini Game Hubs, the ability to set your online status to "Do Not Disturb" and more besides.

Mini Game Hubs: Soon to be available in the Guide. A subset of users may also see additional experimental features meant to gauge interest and gather feedback for the team. The feature will hide your notifications and let your friends know you are unavailable.

Quality of life improvement for comments. Comments are now being prioritised in favour of the most recent, and while viewing community posts in full screen, you'll see a preview of the most recent comment. Comments are also being rearranged to place those that are most recent at the top. The Narrator is also now able to read large amounts of text.

Additional inactivity shutdown options are being added to the Power mode & startup menu. Now there are one and six hour options, but Microsoft made a decision to add, two, three, four, and five hour options after reviewing feedback from users. A fix is being worked on.
