Xbox One's May Update Adds 120Hz Refresh Rate, Group Pins

Xbox One's May Update Adds 120Hz Refresh Rate, Group Pins

These new features will be rolling out for further testing to Xbox Insiders over the next while, as well as some undisclosed experimental features to a small subset of those in the Insider program. That's in addition to the 1440p resolution and variable refresh rate options that were added in the April update.

A few of the more simple changes include an option to switch between a dark and light theme, the ability to filter invitation requests in clubs, the ability to balance game audio against background music, and an updated look to the Microsoft Edge app. "And as you would expect, the console will be backward and forwards compatible, much like the Xbox One X". Last up in the video department is support for 1440p resolution on Xbox One X and Xbox One S. All of these new features can be accessed and turned on in the Display & Sound section in your Xbox settings. To get started, open the Game Hub for a game that supports tournaments. Suffice to say that games that might have been limited to 30fps will probably not jump to 4 times more frames per second.

This isn't Microsoft's fault as HDMI 2.0 doesn't have the bandwidth to support anything beyond 4K 60Hz.

Updated streaming options, internet browsers, and community features complete the scenario, with a lot to look forward to after you update your console. For example, your Pins could be one group (which Xbox has set up as a default Group for testers) and you could have another for games you've completed, specific types of games, or anything else you can think needing a collection for.

This is why the company is doing "significant investments" in order to repay that support and return to lead the industry as it was in the Xbox 360 era during the next generation of consoles. This feature has been worked upon to now let users trim their captured clips directly from the "Guide".

The Xbox Family Settings will get a new "Details" section for even more information on family control and settings. Parents will easily be able to tell which family and content settings are set up and configured.
