‘Microsoft’ releases ‘October Update’ for ‘Xbox One’ which introduces improved ‘Family Settings’ and more

Just a few days ago, Sony released the update 7.0.0 for PlayStation 4 which added the much-awaited Remote Play and Party Features to the console. And now, its Microsoft’s turn as the tech giant releases Xbox One October update today. The regular monthly update introduces a lot of new family features alongside other features. Here are the major changes that the update offers:

Limits for family settings:

With the new update, parents will have more control over whatever their child plays or sees. Moreover, parents are in charge of how long their child spends time within specific apps or games in addition to the total time spent on a device.

The update now gives you notifications to alert you when an item in your wish list has a price discount.

Mixer viewing improvements:

Microsoft has built a full Mixer viewing experience right into the dashboard with a focus on speed and simplicity. Viewers will no longer have to navigate to a separate app to enjoy streams.

Xbox Game Pass:

This update now allows you to recommend an Xbox Game Pass title directly from your console.

Recent Players improvements:

It seems like this update makes the Recent Players more reliable so it’s easier to connect with your friends.

Background improvements:

Improvements to automatic game updates have also been made.


An Events app is coming to Xbox One later this month which will tell you about in-game events for your favorite games.

Game capture:

Game captures are getting more settings with this recent update as you will be able to stop games from recording clips without your permission

Capture & Share tab:

Microsoft is also introducing a “Capture & Share” Guide tab for a limited time to welcome any feedback.
