The latest Xbox One System update, which is available to everyone, has gotten some new features that will make everyone happy. Right from new Cortana Skills to Save settings to a cloud, and Ask a parent for kids, something which was available for PC from some time, and now its there on Xbox One as well.
Here is the changelog:
Settings on your home console – including TV and OneGuide – are now saved automatically to the cloud when you sign in. When you set up a new Xbox, we’ll ask if you want to apply them.
Speed up setup
Now you can use the Xbox app on iOS or Android to finish setup on a new Xbox while it downloads the day one update. Look for the option when the update starts.
On top of games and friends, now you can add club blocks to Home. Add them from both the guide and the club itself.
Give the gift of games
Want to play Santa? Give a gift from the Microsoft Store, including most digital games, durable DLC, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass. Look for the “Buy as gift” button and send stuff to friends and family. More details here.
Now kids can ask their parents to buy games and apps for them with the “Ask a parent” online safety setting. Parents can manage their children’s privacy & online safety settings in Settings > Account > Family (or visit account.microsoft.com/family).
Screen time limits allow a child to ask for more time when they run out, but the parent had to complete the request on the console. Now, kids can request more time in email and you can approve (or deny) from there. To set up screen time for your family, visit account.microsoft.com/family.
Out of sight
We heard you! Now you can hide your games with no unlocked achievements from the personal and public view of your profile.
