Microsoft Begins Rolling Out Xbox April Update

A more interesting new feature coming is called Groups.

It sounds like both Sony and Microsoft might be releasing their next consoles in the same year much like they did with the PS4 and Xbox One which both came out in the year of 2013. This is due to the Xbox One's HDMI port, which can only support 120Hz at 1080p and 1440p. 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.

Microsoft has also announced that in an attempt to satisfy the demands of their users, the console will implement a new way to organise a user's vast library of apps and games by placing them in "Groups".

This, coupled with support for AMD FreeSync displays - which addresses the screen tearing effect that occurs when a monitor isn't in sync with the GPU - should make gaming experiences pretty sick.

Talking about a more precise timeline, it looks like the company is not "in a rush" now as it has just launched Xbox One X in November 2017 and feels quite good about the amount of power it gives to the different developers (also in comparison with PS4 Pro).

Not only does it improve graphical fidelity of games, but it also offers a more dynamic mode of play.

While he scored 10 points on 4-for-4 shooting in 17 minutes in Game 4, he recorded only five points in 14 minutes in Game 3. In Game Two, Wade turned back the clock with an insane performance to steal a win in Philadelphia, blaming Hart afterwards.

In addition, you can now share captured screenshots and clips directly to Twitter, after authenticating your account, from the Broadcast & Capture tab of the Guide.

Microsoft is also bringing Xbox One interface improvements, as PC World outlines.

Light and dark themes were introduced with the last update, but you'll now be able to set it so that it adjusts based on the time of day. The upcoming Groups feature allows you to group your games and apps how you want. Track clips with the #XboxShare hashtag!

We're also making changes to some of the button commands throughout the dashboard. Microsoft is making Community tournaments directly available from Games Hubs, and adding "What's new", "What's hot" and "Top posts" filters for Club Feeds. You'll also no longer need to be the administrator of a Club to create new tournaments.

Microsoft hasn't given any details as to which games will actually be able to support 120Hz gaming.
