Final of the new features in this update are enhancements to the Xbox Accessories app, Family Settings, and new intuitive button commands. With these updates in place, Xbox has taken user feedback into account with improved ease of access and quality of life. Xbox Live subscribers can now link their account with a Discord account so you can see what your friends are playing and doing across networks. This will also allow players to start Mixer broadcasts from anywhere on Xbox One, making streaming easier than ever. This version of the Xbox OS comes with some new features, including 120Hz support, and much more.

Microsoft tries to update its Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X consoles once every month.

New button commands. Button commands have been updated throughout the Dashboard so that you can more easily find common options. Now you'll be able to play online and explore the galaxies with company. Apart from the 1440p resolution and auto low latency mode on your console, you can now turn on 120Hz support for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions if you own a supported monitor or television.
