The highlight feature has to be the ability to set your online status as "Do not Disturb", something fans have always been asking for. You'll get a quick look at the Achievements you are close to getting across all of your games and can even instantly launch them.

Apparently, Microsoft is looking to update Xbox Achievements with a new "Careers" system and other special Avatar bonuses. You can also sort your Achievements by how rare they are.

Mini Game Hubs will soon be available right in the Guide. Will be able to access content for games you've played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the action. Mini Game Hubs allow you to easily see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more. This is a handy feature for those that don't want interruptions while focusing on their game. A Do Not Disturb online status is coming, which will suppress notifications and let your friends know you're unavailable at the moment.

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.

Canada is investigating 41 cases in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador. This is the same type of E. coli that is responsible for the current outbreak in the United States and Canada.


The update also tweaked the community feed to make it easier to view comments.

The alpha build will also add additional inactivity shut down options to the power mode and the startup menu. More granularity for auto-shutdown timing is en route as well, with options that will turn the console off after two, three, four and five hours.

Whether it's something based on Halo or some of Rare's many franchises remains to be seen, but at least it looks like we can look forward to more games for Xbox One than we got a year ago. As noted by Windows Central, Microsoft is looking to enhance Xbox Achievements to complement the new Avatars that were originally slated to arrive in Fall 2017.
