Following the announcement made last May to the brand’s insiders, Microsoft is releasing a system update for the Xbox X series and S series consoles. One of the most anticipated additions is the anti-noise filter for online conversations. Directly built-into in the system, this feature, activated by default, can be deactivated from the options menu.
PC users are familiar with this anti-noise feature, which is very useful for online gamers. Among the various updated features, noise-cancelling is finally coming to consoles. It allows you to eliminate as much as possible in your gaming headphones the annoying noises that surround you during your games such as breathing, the noise of the controllers, birds or even cars driving by. However, this function has its limits, as you will still here some sounds, although they will still be attenuated.
This update also includes a feature allowing you to join your fellow gamers. When you share a short video or screenshot with them, they can join you in-game from any device: PC, smartphone or tablet. Note that this feature requires an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription to work with some games.
The 10.0.22621.1836 update is currently being deployed since September 7 in France. It should bring you other bug fixes in addition to the two features highlighted by Microsoft.
