Microsoft released a major update this week for the Xbox One operating system. Among bug fixes and minor enhancements, there is also a new “do not disturb” mode and design changes to the dashboard.
The Guide, that side menu that appears when you press the Xbox button on the control, now shows new information, such as upcoming achievements to be unlocked, group posts, and friends who are playing the same game as you.
Do Not Disturb mode is a new status option for those who do not want to go online or look offline. With it turned on, your friends know that you have the console on the network, but the notifications are muted so as not to disturb the game.
Finally, the console now offers more auto power off options. Before, you could schedule the Xbox One to shut down after one or six hours of inactivity. It can now be turned off after two, three, four or five hours idle.
The update number 1802 also promised to bring preprogrammed themes to the dashboard since it was released to the Insider program testers. However, the public version of the build came without this feature, which may arrive in a next update.
