Xbox One Gets 'Do Not Disturb' Feature

Share

Having online and community-centric features baked right into consoles is nice, don't get me wrong, but sometimes you just want to play a game (or watch a movie or show) without being bombarded.

Microsoft has announced that they're introducing a Do Not Disturb feature that'll hopefully discourage people from sending unwanted messages and invites. Obviously. Now you won't have to appear offline to let your friends know you're being anti-social.

Chief among the new features is a "Next Achievements" function found in the Guide, enabling you to view and sort a list of upcoming achievements.

I know it doesn't freak anyone else out because none of you have gender dysphoria - it's not an issue for you whatsoever. When the Australian Idol star entered the house, fans were stunned by India saying she has a "phobia" of drag queens.

Other additions in the latest update include Mini Game Hubs in the Guide, as well as a better view for comments on community posts. This also allows you to easily see which Achievements are almost achieved alongside links to quick load those games.

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.

The update is now being rolled out for those who are part of the Xbox Insider beta, after some testing the update will then roll out to everyone else.

The company also produces and sells a line of organic hard ciders and vinegars, which Molson Coors plans to continue producing. The UK is the largest cider market in the world: a "substantial industry" that is enjoying value growth.

Mini Game Hubs will soon be available right in the Guide.

Do not Disturb automatically prevents notifications from popping up, but the biggest reason you'd want to pick it is enjoying online games without getting bothered with messages and invites. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.

The update will also add a "Do Not Disturb" online status, to let friends know you're now unavailable, while the community feed has also been tweaked to make it easier to view.
