Massive update released for Xbox One

Windows 10 Creators Update packs with bunch of new features and significant improvements.

Microsoft is rolling out a new update for OneNote on Windows 10. This Xbox One update precedes the Creators Update for Windows 10, which is being pushed out to users starting on 11th April.

The multitasking features were created to act more like the new Guide and prioritize specific features.

The new enhanced guide takes some inspiration from the old Xbox 360 menu with the Xbox button bringing up an "enhanced Guide" as an overlay on the left side of your screen.

The first thing one would notice post the update is the new look of the Home Screen.

Another marquee feature for Microsoft is the wider release of their Beam streaming service, which is integrated into the Guide, as well as being a new app to let you tune in and watch others. And in case you missed it, yesterday Microsoft announced that user will able to upgrade Windows via Upgrade Assistant from April 5. Microsoft is aiming to put the features and experiences that the players love the most right at their fingertips. It also ties in with the Microsoft Surface Studio, the beast of a machine released past year that put all other PCs to shame, including the iMac and the new MacBook Pro. But if you want to jump right in from your Xbox One, here's how to get started with just a few button taps.

One of the Xbox directors, Chad Gibson, recently discussed the benefits of Beam, and stated that it is a unique live streaming system that "blur [s] the lines between the playing and watching experience". If you don't have a custom background already set, the Xbox One will spotlight the game you're now playing by using it as the background image. The new update will also provide Xbox One players with a more streamlined interface.

The new Guide is also the gateway to new Xbox One multitasking features.

Also on Thursday, Microsoft reiterated its roll-out plan for the Creators Update. The Creator's Update includes major updates for Microsoft Paint and a Game Mode for Windows 10 PCs. The hope is that the low-latency feature and future modding possibilities will attract more gamers to Beam over time.

The Xbox One's Blu-ray player now supports bitstream passthrough, which allows your receiver to decode audio natively. Alternatively, you can also install the ISO or upgrade using from the Windows Insider Program tab.

Hopefully, all of that is about to change, and based on the comments we've seen from Xbox Insider beta participants, it will be a change for the better.
