Just when there is 1 day to go Starfield official releaseMicrosoft has released a new update for its Series X and Series S consoles, and there are so many new features that have been included that we are going to have to list them below. It’s one of those updates that includes some pretty cool features that you should be aware of, and there are a couple of them that you might want to keep on your radar.
Beware of insulting
Surely on more than one occasion you have come across a player who has not taken a defeat too well in FIFA. Direct messages may be fairly moderated and it’s easy to report harassment and insults that way, but what if someone won’t stop audio insulting you through the microphone?
At Microsoft they continue to work to make their user network a safe and pleasant place, and they try by all means to put an end to misconduct focused on harassment and any type of insult. For this reason, they have implemented a new function with which you can record the audio of the last 60 seconds to report what happened to the Xbox team.
Thus, in the event of running into someone disrespectful, it is enough to record the audio and send what is recorded to the support team so that they can evaluate what happened. Yes, unfortunately the feature will currently only be available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. We hope that it will not take long to be implemented in Spanish-speaking countries.
Optimizing the VRR
The variable refresh rate arrived as one of the new features of this latest generation of consoles. Thanks to this technology, the television is able to adjust its refresh rate according to the frame rate that is being generated on the console, thus obtaining a more fluid experience while playing, avoiding the appearance of artifacts.
Well, this is not always useful, especially when you navigate through menus and play multimedia content such as the Netflix catalog. Fortunately, the new built-in option will allow users to choose whether the VRR option is always on, off, or only on for games.
Let them see you play on Discord
Another of the included functions continues to improve compatibility with one of the most booming gamer social networks. We talk about discordthat you will now be able to receive a live broadcast from your console. Thus, your channel may be directly broadcasting what happens on your console, being able to talk with all the friends who are connected to said channel.
An update with many new features
The list of new features included is quite extensive, and it is that functions such as the new menu for redeeming rewards have been included, the option to ask if you can join a friend’s game session, more notification settings for the Store, or the option of activate device pairing mode no need to get up and press the button on the front of the console.
