Game Pass will be featured prominently with Next Major Update of Xbox One

After the major announcement of Xbox Game Pass to bring games published by Microsoft on the same day, a Preview Alpha build rolling out to Xbox Insiders now puts Xbox Game Pass at a prominent place.

This update has enabled a new feature to show an “Xbox Game Pass” tab within “My games & apps” for users on Preview Alpha with an active Game Pass subscription. If you have an active Game Pass subscription, they will see this tab appear in “My games & apps” and be able to quickly install available games from Game Pass. It works just like ‘Ready to install’ but for Game Pass.

When it comes to achivments, this build also has the ability to hide/unhide a specific achievement or entire game from the Next Achievements section.

Apart from this, the insider’s update has also rolled out fixes which are as follows:


• Profile: Fixed an issue which caused the incorrect profile color to display after powering on the console.

• System Update: Resolved an issue which sometimes caused the console to get stuck at a loading screen (with a loading spinner only) when downloading a system update.

• Party Chat : Resolved an issue which sometimes caused party chat to crash in the Guide.

You will need to go to All Settings > System > Updates to check if you have the update. Its only for Preview Alpha so you need to check on that as well. The update went live  at 2PM PST today, January 23.
