Xbox One is getting more descriptive Achievement notifications

Look for the update today if you’re a preview member

Recommended Videos

Another Xbox One system update, another opportunity to use some insane cartoon image.

Microsoft is rolling out updates for Xbox One Preview Program members in two waves — the first hits today, while the second will arrive next week. Today’s update, which the rest of us will get ~eventually~, adds descriptions to Achievement pop-ups you don’t need waste time loading the slow Achievement app to see that info. Bonus: Microsoft went ahead and made that app faster.

Other enhancements include better troubleshooting for party chat — no more relying on your technologically competent teenager for microphone setup! — and, uh, “Members can more easily discover game hub content from activity feed items.” Never bothered much with that social stuff.
