Xbox May update brings Discord linking, improved refresh rate and more

No Man’s Sky heads to the Xbox One in July

No Man’s Sky heads to the Xbox One in July

It's been in testing with Insiders since then, but today, the update is available for everyone, according to Microsoft's Brad Rossetti. There's now a new "Groups" tab present in the "My Games & apps" section, allowing you to make custom folders for games and apps you want to group together.

Another big update to the Xbox One featured in the May update is 120Hz Video Refresh Rate Support.

If you've been waiting to play No Man's Sky on XBox One, you'll be happy to hear that it's headed your way on July 24th. The May update is the last one before E3, which is always a time when Microsoft could reveal groundbreaking new features or major overhauls. You'll also notice that some games will no longer stutter and tear if you choose this output on your monitor. Click on the Xbox Live option and sign in to your account. After linking, you'll notice that your Xbox Live stats will be shared on Discord, so your friends and users there can see what you're playing.

Thanks to this update, you can now trim clips directly from the Guide. Previously, you had to boot up Upload Studio, and that could take a little while.

The game now does have a limited form of multiplayer, but with the update, players will be able to interact with other players better, such as grouping up with them to survive, build, race, and relax.

Improved Family settings: You now have a central hub to manage how your family members access content on the Xbox One.

Microsoft has more details about these upgrades and changes on its blog right here.

Finally, the update includes improvements to the parental control system and a command configuration for the View option, which now allows modifying the order of the blocks and items in the groups.
