Xbox One Gets 'Do Not Disturb' Feature

Microsoft is working on bringing a bunch of new features to the Xbox One and they are going out for testing. Mini Game Hubs allow you to easily see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more. You'll get a quick look at the Achievements you are close to getting across all of your games and can even instantly launch them. There are sort filters too that let you prioritise next achievements by "closest", "most common, "rarest", "most common rare" or 'highest Gamerscore". Xbox Insider Program members would have already received a console update as well which adds a next achievement features which tracks progress towards the next achievable achievement in a game.

Mini Game Hubs will soon be available right in the Guide. With this feature, you'll be able to access content for the games you've played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the current game you're playing. It will show you need-to-know information without leaving your game such as online friends, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group requests, and more.

Quality of life improvement for comments. The community feed has been tweaked to make reading comments much easier, and the "Next Achievements" feature is now accessible in the Guide so you can "view and sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements".

Luke Walton's job security is "not even a conversation"
ESPN following LaVar Ball all around the world? "Or are they just blowhard loudmouths?" Things just got rather interesting. Walton is more important to the franchise (and has deeper roots) than Lonzo or LaVar Ball.

The alpha build will also add additional inactivity shut down options to the power mode and the startup menu. Now there are one and six hour options, but Microsoft chose to add, two, three, four, and five hour options after reviewing feedback from users.

There are other new features, but Microsoft isn't ready to talk about them publicly yet and is only rolling them out to a small subset of users as "experimental".
