Microsoft pushed out a pretty big Xbox One update for Insiders this week

1440p, better Mixer support, enhanced audio

I dig Microsoft’s approach to console updates. They’re not every other week like Sony, and when they do arrive, they herald myriad enhancements, not just “stability.”

For their spring Xbox One update that’s rolling out to Insiders this week, you’ll now have the option to swap to 1440p video, share a controller over Mixer (their streaming platform that still needs traction but is actually nice to use), a better Edge browser, a balance option for your own tunes versus game audio, more Club filter options, smarter feed sorting options, and open tournaments through Game Hubs.

The former is probably one of the biggest things, as many PC users who default to 2560×1440 (read: between 1080p and 4K) will find that their Xbox Ones are much more wieldy when using a monitor. Naturally, the Insider program will probably smooth out a few of these additions before they launch for the public later this spring.
