World news – Xbox update lands in preparation for the launch of the Xbox wireless headset and more


A new software update for Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Windows 10 is available. The update prepares the systems for the Xbox wireless headset to start. The update changes the Xbox Accessories app before the wireless headset launches, and adds new switches for FPS Boost and Auto HDR for backward-compatible games. Updates to the Xbox Wireless Headset will be released on March 16.

With the applied update, Microsoft game consoles and Windows 10 devices can optimize audio controls for a personalized audio experience. Users have access to equalizer settings, bass boost, auto mute, microphone monitoring, and control of the brightness of the microphone’s mute light. Microsoft also notes that the headset can be updated with the latest features using wireless updates through the console.

The upcoming updates for backward-compatible auto HDR and FPS boost settings for games fulfill a promise made in February. With this update, new switches for FPS Boost and Auto HDR are displayed in the game settings area. When the game restarts, selections are applied and users can review them by pressing the Xbox button and looking for indicators under the clock. Not all games support these features, so compatibility options may not be available.

Microsoft is also bringing back achievements to the Xbox app on mobile devices. In March, Microsoft will test various performance experiences in the app, starting with a limited number of players, before it becomes available to everyone. The first update brings a list of achievements to the app, a screen with details of the achievements and notifications of unlocked achievements. An additional update will be released in the coming months that will include features such as rankings.

Microsoft is also bringing subscription management to the Xbox console to make it easier for customers to see information such as the latest charge, fee and date, and more in Account Settings. The update also removes TV listings in OneGuide and improves the performance of the Manage Screen screen and the & My Games apps.
