These updates are coming out this afternoon to all users as early as this afternoon.

Streaming should look some amount better than it has in the past, when you're the one streaming from your Xbox One.

The update also introduces improved console broadcasting quality and stability improvements. Mixer can now work with full screen broadcasting for webcams - JOY. Touch-enabled devices get multi-touch support so that multiple controls can be used simultaneously. Per-channel leaderboards were added too. Y will now bring up a search dialogue as well as access to Settings. Hit enter or click the "more results" button to view a full page for your search results.

Players can also now create groups for their Xbox One games and apps.


The game has been undergoing some big changes since it left the Xbox Preview Program, including the addition of Duo mode, invite a friend options, private matches, the Glider tool, skill-based matchmaking, and five new Show Director powers. This feature was first announced at E3 2018.

FastStart is a new innovation from our Xbox Platform team that allows you to jump into your games twice as fast and play after downloading just a fraction of it. FastStart works by identifying which files are needed to begin playing and prioritizes the download of those files first, enabling you to quickly jump into full-fidelity gameplay while the remainder of your title downloads in the background.

According to Xbox, the point of FastStart is to give you the information you need to get to the game immediately, and not get stuck on the main menu while you wait for the download to finish. This app has been tested out by Xbox Insiders the last few weeks, with a launch for everyone happening today.

More cosmetics can be unlocked in Darwin Project by simply levelling up and to coincide with the ongoing World Cup, there are also limited time footie-themed items to purchase using the game's Ramen currency.
