NEW FEATURES:

Welcome to 1706 on Xbox One! This month we’re rolling out more fan-requested improvements, new features for Mixer, and much more!

 

NOTE: Not all planned features for the 1706 update are available at this time.

 

Profile

When a signed in user is selected in the Guide, the e-mail address associated with their account will now display under their profile, as well as on Home. This feature is enabled by default for adult accounts, and disabled for child accounts (child accounts will never see the e-mail address associated with their account displayed).

 

Adult accounts can disable this feature by navigating to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey.


Mixer Co-streaming

You can now invite a friend to combine their game broadcast with yours! Sign in with an account that has an Xbox Live Gold subscription and invite a friend to your party. Once you’ve begun broadcasting your game from the Guide, you’ll be able to select “Invite party to co-stream” from the Party tab. Co-streaming is currently available only to Alpha Insiders, so we’d suggest using the Insider forums to sync up with other Alpha Insiders to test out this feature.    

 

Learn more about co-streaming and other features new to Mixer here, and be sure to complete the “Invite to Co-Stream” Quest and Survey in the Xbox Insiders Hub to provide your feedback!


Controller Linking

Signing into your Xbox account can now be done with a click of the Xbox button thanks to the new controller linking feature! You can now link an account to a specific controller by opening the Guide, navigating to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey and selecting the “This controller signs in…” option followed by “Link controller.” From there, test the feature out for yourself by signing out of your account and then turning your controller off and then back on.


Find more detailed steps and provide your thoughts on this feature by accepting the “Link Your Controller” Quest in the Xbox Insiders Hub!

Still no plans to replace the snap TV function. So very disappointing. Such a core feature , removed without notice and with no replacement. Come on, you've got the votes on user voice. I just dont understand the decision to remove a core, heavily promoted feature. At least have a media mode which lets users choose to have the feature if it impacts system performance. I personally never had an issue.

Thank you. As an Ambassador who gets A LOT of "I forgot my Microsoft Account email" questions, this is a godsend :)


"You can now link an account to a specific controller"

By the way: What happened to the Infrared lights on controllers, where Kinect would "see" who is using which controller?
