Microsoft Brings FastStart, Game Grouping, More With Xbox's July Update

How to clean up Xbox One add-ons for more free space

The July update started rolling out to players yesterday, and with it comes some of the more eagerly awaited features like FastStart and Groups for games and apps. FastStart now applies to all English-language games in the Xbox Game Pass, including Fallout 4, Sea of Thieves, Elder Scrolls Online, and more. FastStart prioritizes the files in games which need to be downloaded first, Microsoft says you can expect for FastStart to expand to more games in more languages over the next few months. Groups for Games and AppsOriginally introduced to select Insiders in April, technical problems meant this feature has taken a while to reach everybody. You can assign names, organize and order the items in Groups, and you can sync them with your Microsoft Account across all your Xbox Consoles.

Both Xbox and PlayStation include similar features which allow users to play your game when a certain amount of the game has been downloaded - in Xbox's case, it's called "ready to start". Players can also now search quickly on the dashboard by pressing the Y button. You can switch to full screen webcam broadcasting at any time you want. Groups will appear across My Games & Apps, Home and Guide, so you'll be able to access your Groups at a moment's notice. Share Controller ImprovementsThis somewhat controversial feature has received improvements to make it easier to it on the internet. Multi-touch was added, so multiple controls can be used at the same time. Finally, there's a per-channel leaderboard that focuses on players who contributed the most to the streamer's Mixer session through Share Controller. You can now broadcast your webcam in full screen from your Xbox, and the quality and performance of broadcasts have also been improved in Mixer, according to Microsoft. While in this mode game audio is muted, making it flawless for talking to your audience while switching from game to game or setting up before you start playing.
