Xbox One July Update Lands Bringing FastStart Feature For Games

Microsoft and Nintendo recently worked together in the new Minecraft: Better Together update trailer, but Sony has notoriously been missing from these promotions since it doesn't prefer to be included in the cross-play festivities.

According to Microsoft, games that utilize the feature will half the amount of time it takes from when a download begins to the moment you're actually able to play it.

The two big caveats here, though, are that games need to be FastStart-enabled by Microsoft and you'll need a download speed of around 20Mbps. The update is version 1806, and it's what would be considered to be a minor feature update.

FastStart uses machine learning to identify which files are needed first and prioritize those downloads so you can jump into a game faster while the rest of the file finishes.

Netflix Is Removing User Reviews
Netflix notified users of the change in an email which stated: 'You contributed a review on Netflix within the previous year . A plan that limits subscribers to one screen at a time without high-definition remained at £5.99 ($8 in the US) a month.

The information comes directly from Microsoft (via Polygon) and applies to select Xbox One games. Now pressing the Y button anywhere in the dashboard will bring up the search dialog, allowing you to easily launch your content, sift through Settings, or find products in the Store.

Announced at E3 2018, FastStart is part of Microsoft's July platform update that brings a number of small - but impactful - updates to the console.

In time for the Xbox One release, Scavenger Studios has added language localisations to the game, including French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Japanese, and Korean.

"First, we've enabled full mouse and keyboard support for PC users, along with Share Controller Key Bindings", Hyrb explained. Each channel also now features leaderboards, showing who contributed the most. Mixer can now work with full screen broadcasting for webcams - JOY. Since entering Xbox Game Preview, Darwin Project has also gained a Duo mode, private matches, a Glider tool, skill-based matchmaking, five new Show Director powers, and support for eight different languages.
