Xbox One March Update rolling out; brings Beam streaming, updated guide, more

Microsoft partner group program manager Chad Gibson told gaming publication Gamespot that Microsoft is talking with third-party developers about new interactive modding features for Beam and that they may "come to market later this year". It now is available on the Xbox One for fans finally.

Microsoft plans to release the Windows 10 Creators Update on April 11, 2017. The creators of Xbox even updated for Windows 10 with some features similar to Xbox. It has redesigned the layout of the home screen to show more content at once while emphasising community material such as screenshots and activity updates.

The guide also now has a new achievement tracker.

Similarly, the Guide menu has been overhauled with a simplified design. It can be accessed by single-tapping the Xbox button on the controller or clicking over to the left when on the Home screen. This will allow gamers to play online in a new manner.

With the arrival of Beam Streaming, Xbox One players will now be able to connect with other gamers live. No extra devices or software are required.

The update allows One streamers to manage their streams and interact with their viewers via a chat overlay.

It looks like Home is going to get an update, and the new look for Home on Xbox One is something that most people might want to check out.

According to Xbox, Cortana's "overall performance and ability" has been improved. This new feature allows you to select and follow multiple achievements, which are displayed in an overlay while you play the game; flawless for those of us who like to see a meaningless number slowly increase. Copilot mode lets two controllers be combined as one which could be useful for gamers who aren't able to play with the regular configuration. And by updating the navigation of the Xbox console through the new Guide, we're aiming to put the features and experiences you love the most right at your fingertips. Achievements and saves sync seamlessly between devices. However, Microsoft has announced a new way to get the update ahead of schedule.
