Already rolling out to Xbox Insiders in the Alpha ring, Microsoft has revealed some of the features that will be coming with the next Xbox One system update, including new achievement features, Mini Game Hubs, the ability to set your online status to "Do Not Disturb" and more besides. A few Xbox Insider users may see experimental features not mentioned above. The first new features Insiders will be able to test out is the "Next Achievements" feature in Guide. The latest Xbox One system update will affect how you interact with your games, your friends, and more. This also allows you to easily see which Achievements are almost achieved alongside links to quick load those games. There are sort filters too that let you prioritise next achievements by "closest", "most common, "rarest", "most common rare" or 'highest Gamerscore".

The "Next Achievements" feature will be added to the Guide allowing you to view a list of your almost completed Achievements and quickly launch the game to acquire them.

A miniaturised version of Game Hubs has been added to the Guide.




We're also getting Mini Game Hubs, which allow access to content from recently played games from a Game Hub without needing to exit whatever game you are playing. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.

It can take a bit for the features on the Insider program to make it to everyone, but these are some nice quality of life improvements. You'll soon be able to see a peek of the most recent comments on community posts while viewing the activity in full screen.
