Xbox One’s April update is launching today, bringing with it game hub links, Achievement descriptions as part of their pop-up notifications, and a new menu area called “What’s On.”
The game hub links allows you to access a central page for a specific game through any activity feed posts about it. At the game hub, you can launch the game itself, view its achievements and leaderboards, or jump to its store.
The improved Achievement notifications, obviously, now let you know what you accomplished to earn the Achievement in question without having to dig into the game’s Achievement page for more info.
The April update is also introduced Party chat improvements, namely to illustrate errors (such as a mic disconnected or whether chat is disabled for Kinect, or if privacy settings are interfering with the chat connection).
The big new addition April’s update introduces is the What’s On menu area, couched between the “Friends” tab and the “Store” tab. What’s on curates popular content (videos, broadcasts, clips) pertaining to video games and, if OneGuide is configured, television shows.
According to Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, voice messaging and dedicated servers for party chat are remaining behind in preview while they apply feedback from preview system users.
