Rolling out this week to Xbox Series X|S & Xbox One
The Xbox May 2023 update begins rolling out to all users on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S this week, introducing a few new features that aren’t all that major, but it’s nice to have them all the same.
Here’s a short overview of the Xbox May 2023 update, with more details available at Xbox Wire:
- View Xbox Gamertags Of Your Discord Friends
“When your Discord account is linked to Xbox, you can join voice channels from your Discord servers directly from your Xbox console. Starting today, you’ll be able to see the Xbox gamertags of your Discord friends while you’re connected to Discord Voice from your Xbox. This makes it easier to add each other as Xbox friends and send each other Xbox game invites.”
- New Sort And Filter Options In The Microsoft Store On Xbox.com
“It’s easier than ever to find your next favorite Xbox games and entertainment in the Microsoft Store on Xbox. Now there are new sort and filter options on the pages you can browse on Xbox.com and on your Xbox console that pull in price, subscriptions, supported languages, and accessibility features to find the perfect games for you.”
- Xbox Wireless Controller Firmware Update
“We’re rolling out a firmware update that includes bug fixes for unexpected slow battery drain in controllers with internal batteries like Xbox Elite Series 2 and Xbox Adaptive controllers or the Xbox rechargeable battery.”
“There is also a bug fix for controllers that disconnect in games when using headphones with 4K, 120Hz, and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) enabled. You can update your controller wirelessly or with a USB connection.”
- Xbox Game Pass Quests Are Now Easier To Find
“Xbox Game Pass Quests in your profile are moving from the Gaming tab to the new Rewards tab. You can also jump to them quickly by pressing the Xbox button to open the guide, choosing Profile & system, selecting your profile, and then choosing My rewards. As we roll this out, a random subset of users will be able to give it a try.”Which of these May 2023 Xbox features are you excited for? Let us know in the comments below.
