The Xbox Insider program allows you to receive, on a voluntary basis, future updates that the consoles of the general public will receive. Periodically, members of the program are invited to download patches or additions. The latest patch note mentions some new features reserved for these members.
New to the program!
The Insider program regularly provides a glimpse, before anyone else, of the new features implemented at the heart of the Xbox operating system. Recently, the establishment of a family version of the Xbox Game Pass subscription or the upcoming arrival of Discord have been highlighted via said program.
In its latest patch note, the program indicates that Alpha and Alpha Skip-Ahead members, the most advanced levels in terms of receiving updates, will soon receive new features. The latter could have a link with the interface of the console, because one can read the following there.
New features and experiences
Alpha Skip-Ahead tier users can expect something new in their Xbox update preview.
Settings – Main Console
We’ve updated the settings page for the main console so users know how to set up a main console and understand how it works.
If we don’t know anything about these new features at the moment, we will soon be able to count on the application of the update 2308.220815-1900 to know more when turning on our consoles in Insider version. Microsoft will also be sure to communicate more about these features as they roll out.
Regarding the new features for defining an Xbox console as “Primary Console”, an explanatory note has been added to the screen so that players can better understand what this option is for.
The description now specifies that by defining its console as “Xbox Main”, console users can play the games available on the machine without the main account being necessarily connected. It is also specified that if you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription, any household that uses the console also benefits. Remember that this function is the cornerstone of account sharing on Xbox.
