Minecraft's latest update brings new additions for players around various devices

Content Block Xbox One

Microsoft's new update brings Minecraft for Xbox, Windows 10, AR and also mobile, which is now consider dead. Completing one gameplay and then continuing the next adventure on your mobile is truly a great addition to it. Regular pinned games and apps are still there, too, with up to 40 pins. A new Tournaments section in the Multiplayer tab also offers a "quick portal" to official and community tournaments you've joined.

"There are new options to help save time when moving from one Xbox One to another (including Xbox One X), so you can get back to playing faster", Microsoft explains. There is only one setting you can control as of now- pointer speed. Perhaps you're better off updating it on your Android or iOS. It provides access to Sign-in, Achievements, Parties, Friends, Home, Messages, Broadcasts and a new Action Centre.

By default, updates are downloaded and installed when the console isn't in use to reduce the impact that the update process has on the overall Xbox One experience. In the previous version, sometimes it was hard to find what you were looking for but now with the blocks, you can select content, games or apps whichever you want.

It'll also rearrange your notifications if you haven't turned your console on for a while, providing you with all the most important notifications/activities that you've missed first.

Microsoft has rolled out this year's Xbox One Fall Update, providing gamers with more ways of customizing their console. Still, as he correctly says, "it's a chicken and egg problem", meaning that Japanese companies don't find an audience on Xbox, but in order to attract one there needs to be Japanese titles coming for it. Streamers and YouTubers will also be pleased to hear about the updated 4K/HDR screenshot and game clip support, as well as USB webcam support for streaming on Mixer.
