New Xbox Series X|S Patch Brings Faster Boot Times, Among Other Updates

The patch also brings features like background noise suppression.

The next-gen of video games could not flourish without the robust tower of powers that are the latest Xbox consoles. The duo of Series X|S consoles has proven to be as good as well-built gaming PCs.

Microsoft is also working on improving the Cloud technology. The latest addition in the works adds the ability to play games on Samsung TVs without consoles.

The latest Xbox consoles have also delivered in the software department by adorning it with innovative changes. Microsoft continues to polish the Xbox Series X|S experience for its community by bringing the much-requested enhancements.

The latest update rolling out today incorporates features like party chat noise suppression and more. The unwanted noises, loud breathing, clicking, and background screeching will become a part of history as the party chat noise suppression will remove the undesired noises.

The voice chat experience will feel more premium and easy to communicate during sweat-inducing gameplay moments. The noise suppression can also be turned off if some background music or white noise is required during gaming sessions.

To turn it off, “open the guide, scroll to Parties & chats, and select Options. There you can enable or disable noise suppression.” Moreover, this feature will reportedly be coming on other devices in the future.

The latest patch also enhances the use of Cloud technology. Thus far, numerous game clips and important moments have been shared among gamers via link sharing, but they could only be viewed. The latest update will allow you to jump right into the game through the moments shared by your friends via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

The update states, “The friends you share your game clips and screenshots with can not only watch your captures; they can start playing right away on their device with cloud gaming. (Some games require Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for cloud gaming.).”

Meaning you can start playing a game on any device that supports Cloud Gaming. Microsoft keeps increasing the usage of Cloud technology for Xbox through these updates. This is not all; Microsoft has reportedly rolled out more additions and fixes not mentioned in the patch notes.

Although not significant, the enhancements are worth going through. This info was shared by an Xbox engineer, Eden Marie, on her Twitter handle. 

The update reportedly includes even faster boot times on Series X|S, meaning the booting will be even quicker and more unnoticeable than before. Moreover, the update also tackles other lingering issues with much-needed fixes that have been slightly inconvenient to gamers. 

The other fixes include the “Fix for delisted Games with Gold not showing in the full library.” The titles without gold included Forza Horizon 2, Forza Motorsport 5 & 6, and Project CARS, among many others.

However, the games were accessible through the store before, as mentioned by Eden. Moreover, the update also fixes issues with live streaming bitrate and resolution settings resetting.
