Xbox One System Update Released; New features, Xbox One X Blu-Ray fix included

You can hide games with no unlocked achievements!

Xbox One owners can look forward to a relatively small update (455MB) to download today! Although it's small, the update brings some user requested updates like the ability to hide games with no unlocked achievements.

The update will bring improved parental controls, accessibility for Xbox Live Gold & Game Pass in Guide, and will effectively resolve the Xbox One X Blu-Ray issues. The additional items included in the update can be found below:

Save me

  • Settings on your home console – including TV and OneGuide – are now saved automatically to the cloud when you sign in. When you set up a new Xbox, we’ll ask if you want to apply them.

Speed up setup

  • Now you can use the Xbox app on iOS or Android to finish setup on a new Xbox while it downloads the day one update. Look for the option when the update starts.

Clubbin’

  • On top of games and friends, now you can add club blocks to Home. Add them from both the guide and the club itself.

Give the gift of games

  • Want to play Santa? Give a gift from the Microsoft Store, including most digital games, durable DLC, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass. Look for the “Buy as gift” button and send stuff to friends and family.

Pretty please?

  • Now kids can ask their parents to buy games and apps for them with the “Ask a parent” online safety setting. Parents can manage their children's privacy & online safety settings in Settings > Account > Family (or visit account.microsoft.com/family).

Time’s up

  • Screen time limits allow a child to ask for more time when they run out, but the parent had to complete the request on the console. Now, kids can request more time in email and you can approve (or deny) from there. To set up screen time for your family, visit account.microsoft.com/family.

Mad skills

  • Cortana Skills on Xbox let you do more with your voice, like controlling smart home devices, ordering a pizza, or buying tickets to your next concert. You can also ask Cortana to play music from Spotify, Pandora, or iHeartRadio.

Out of sight

  • We heard you! Now you can hide your games with no unlocked achievements from the personal and public view of your profile.
