After that, players can now choose from a variety of methods for default install locations for games and apps on their Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles. Likewise, gamers will now have the option of installing certain types of games or applications to the console’s internal storage or if they prefer external drives or expansion cards. There will also be options where the player can “Let Xbox decide” where they think is the most suitable location for installing content, with factors such as download speed optimization and disk space availability.

Another change that focuses on interface visuals is the player’s new ability to customize the color of the Xbox controller. After gamers have completed the update on their consoles, they now have the option to change their Xbox Button on the Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller. RGB (Red, Green, and Blue) LEDs and their combination can tune your eyes over approximately 16 million shades and colors.

  • Make sure the controller is connected and you’re using your Xbox profile
  • Go to the “Color” tab to customize the button’s hue, brightness, and color.

Another feature for Microsoft PC users is the ability to create a shareable link for “Captures”. This can be done through the Xbox Game Bar. It was also a feature that was included in the previously promised update along with noise cancellation in the Xbox app settings. This new Xbox party chat noise canceling feature has already rolled out to Xbox Series X | S earlier this month. This was added to the update for Xbox One consoles and Microsoft PCs.

One of the most notable parts of the update is that now players set up and start parties directly from the Xbox app via the “Parties” option in the Social tab.
