Latest Xbox One update lets you set privacy on your Activity Feed

New Xbox One Dashboard now open to all

Microsoft's 4K-friendly Xbox One X (left) is due for release in November, while the Xbox One S (right) is seeing a downloadable update now.

As far as transferring your games and stuff to Xbox One X goes, once you have the update you'll be able to copy your games, apps and settings to an external hard drive, ready to put on your new Xbox One X when it arrives.

Currently, Microsoft has only confirmed two games; Fusion Friendly and Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, but Spencer says there's plenty more in the pipeline.

The Xbox One has an exclusivity problem.

Then there are blocks, a new way of organising your favourite games and friends.

There is a newly designed Game Hub Welcome tab.

Unfortunately, the Xbox One Fall Update is known to still have a few bugs, majority related to the Netflix application, Tournaments, and Avatars on the home tab. Each block-which can be a game, friend, Xbox Live Gold, or Xbox Game Pass-gives access to a range of related content. Friend blocks, for example, show recent achievements or Game DVR captures from your friends; Game blocks will give you info about game updates, your GameDVR captures, and so on.

The Guide also has a new Tournaments section in the Multiplayer tab.

And of course, the Xbox Store has now been rebranded to the Microsoft Store.

Furthermore, the Guide tab now showcases increased accessibility and navigation.
